Winter Weather Watch

WINTER WEATHER WILL ARRIVE BEFORE WE KNOW IT.  WHEN SNOW OR OTHER INCLEMENT WEATHER IS PREDICTED, THE SAFETY OF REYNOLDS SCHOOL DISTRICT STUDENTS IS THE PRIMARY CONCERN OF OUR PARENTS AND SCHOOL PERSONNEL.

SCHOOL CLOSING, DELAYS, OR EARLY DISMISSAL

If school is to be delayed, cancelled, or an early dismissal is required, an Emergency Alert telephone and/or email message will be sent to the student, parent and staff contact numbers listed in the system.  If you need to register for the Emergency Alert system, please contact Mr. Brian Buchman at 724-646-5500, Ext. 5515.  In addition, the decision will be broadcast on the radio stations or TV channels listed below.  

On days when weather conditions cause only minor delays for the school buses, students are asked to wait a maximum of fifteen minutes at the bus stop.  However, the waiting period is at the parent’s discretion, depending on wind chill factor, etc.

One or two hour delays in school starting time may be made when weather conditions warrant.  If road conditions worsen during the day and it is not possible to properly maintain the roads, students may be delayed in arriving home.  There may be advanced warning during the school day of potential weather conditions that would warrant closing school at an earlier time.  This would only be done in an extreme situation.  We ask our parents to please have an arrangement planned for their child in case of such an emergency, or any other emergency which may occur on a local or national level.

It is the school district’s responsibility to safely transport children to and from school; however, parents have the ultimate decision.  When the Reynolds School District issues a two-hour delay for the start of school, but a parent feels the weather conditions make it inadvisable to send their child to school, the parent has the ultimate decision and may keep their child home. Send a brief written excuse when your child returns to school. Such absences will be considered excused only on days when a two-hour delay is called. On days when weather conditions cause only minor delays for the school buses, students are asked to wait a maximum of fifteen minutes at the bus stop. However, the waiting period is at the parent’s discretion, depending on wind chill factor, etc.
