Emergency Closure Information
Hazardous weather or unexpected emergencies such as power outages may require changes in school and bus schedules to ensure the safety of our staff and students. This decision is made by the Superintendent based on local outage and or media reports; recommendations from Transportation Officials who monitor road conditions within school district boundaries. If conditions are severe enough to threaten the safety of our staff, students, buses traveling to and from school, the School Closure or Delayed Opening information will be posted on the Internet and will broadcast on the following Radio and TV Stations, as soon as the decision has been made, as early as 5:30 a.m. Please do not call the schools directly as it could overload the phone system and prevent office staff from making the necessary emergency phone calls regarding closures, power outages, leakages, etc. ALL Schools will be listed as North Marion School District.
