School Closings and Delays

SCHOOL CLOSINGS AND DELAYS

Calamity Days may be called for a number of reasons. Most often, it is due to hazardous road conditions due to inclement weather. However, non-weather events may also be a reason for the district to schedule a calamity day. Some examples include: a water main break, power outage, or health-related factors.  A calamity day may be district-wide or school building specific, depending on the reason.

Please plan ahead and make an emergency/calamity event childcare plan with other family members and neighbors as necessary to support your child(ren).

Please note that if schools are on a two-hour delay, this also means that buses are on a two-hour delay. School buses will pick students up two hours later than usual. For example, if a student's bus usually comes at 8:30 a.m., their bus will come at 10:30 a.m. during a two-hours delay.

How Will I Know When School is Closed or Delayed?
The decision to close or delay schools is made by the Superintendent. The district will send automated calls and emails to parents/guardians to alert families and staff of school closings, delays or other emergency situations based upon your communication preferences registered in PowerSchool. In addition, the district will post an alert on our website and social media channels (Facebook, X, and Instagram). TV stations will also carry announcements about school delays or closing beginning in the early morning. 

Building 2-Hour Delay Schedules

Please note that in the case of a 2-hour delay, there will be no breakfast served in the cafeteria. The Licking Memorial Health Center at Licking Heights will be open normal hours. If schools are on a two-hour delay, this also means that buses are on a two-hour delay. School buses will pick students up two hours later than usual.
