The following procedures will be employed by the district when, in the opinion of the administration, conditions exist which warrant school closure, delay or early dismissal.

    School Closure will occur when conditions are so severe that it is not in the best interest of any students to be in school attendance. 

    Delayed Opening situations may occur which will delay school opening two hours (start time of 10:15). If your students’ bus does not arrive within fifteen minutes of its regular time, please look for a notification listed below for information concerning the delayed opening. Morning preschool will be canceled and no breakfast will be served. 

    Students who arrive at school because they did not hear the closure or delay information are asked to go to the main office.

    Early Dismissal situations may occur in which school would be released at an earlier time. Before releasing students, we would attempt to contact parents, and provide notifications as listed below. Normal bus take home routes would be in effect. If the driver determines there to be no adult supervision, the student will be returned to school and kept safe under adult supervision, until the guardian arrives. 

    Communication/ Notifications A message will be sent out via the Remind App and Skyward. Information regarding closure will be available on local media outlets (560AM KPQ, 102.1FM KPQ, 93.5FM KOZI, NCWLife). Determination of delays/closures will be made by 5:45 am. Information will be posted at www.entiatschools.org and on the Entiat Schools Facebook page.
