Bundle up! With the arrival of the season’s first major snow, and more in the forecast for the Salt Lake valley, there will be days in the coming weeks when traveling to and from school is challenging for families.
Please give yourself extra time to walk and drive to school or arrive at the bus stop safely. On wet, wintry days, our schools are lenient with tardies, because we want everyone arriving to school safe, sound and ready to learn.
Keep in mind that, while some of us would prefer to be hitting the slopes or staying tucked in bed with a good book, “snow days,” or school cancellations, are rare in Utah. More often, the District will choose to delay the start of school in order to provide our partner cities with more time to clear sidewalks and streets.
What factors do administrators weigh when deciding whether to delay or cancel school — and how are parents notified? Please see the following list of answers to frequently asked questions.
