How To Know When Schools Are Delayed Or Closed
Winter is just around the corner and that means the possibility of schools on a delay or being closed because of inclement winter weather.
The district aims to announce delays and cancellations as soon as possible but each weather event is different. Here is how you can learn whether your child's school is on a delayed schedule or closed for the day.
- www.rsd.edu and all school websites — a window will pop up on your screen whenever you visit one of our sites and there is a delay or closure in place.
- Social Media — The district posts delay and closure notices to its Facebook & Twitter accounts.
- Direct Emails & Texts — The district will send emails and texts to parents/guardians as soon as there is a delay or closure decision. Families can receive emails and text alerts by ensuring their contact information is updated in PowerSchool and that they have opted to receive those communications. Families should contact their child's school if they have further questions. Community members may sign up to receive email alerts about delays and closures.
- Media — Local television and radio stations frequently run delay and closure announcements
