Inclement Weather

Inclement Weather Policies & Procedures
 
Grand View School wants to help parents, staff and the community prepare for any changes to the school schedule that might occur as a result of inclement weather.
 
The superintendent uses information obtained from weather forecasts and district personnel about road conditions when determining whether school should be cancelled or delayed due to snow, ice or other severe weather.
 
Decisions about delaying or canceling school as a result of inclement weather or even the threat of inclement weather are never easy.  However, we always air on the side of caution to keep our students and employees safe.
 
Information about school cancellations, delays and early dismissals will be posted to the district website at www.grandviewchargers.org.  Additionally, the GVS Information Office will contact students and staff via the SchoolWay app and the ROBO Call notification system with an appropriate message.  Information also will be posted to GVS social media sites (Facebook and Twitter) and shared with local media outlets (Radio Station 102.1 FM, Television Channels KJRH 2, KOTV 6, KTUL 8, CW 19 and FOX 23.)
 
Please keep in mind that no announcement means school is operating on a normal schedule.  However, when school must be dismissed early or is closed, parents should make arrangements for childcare, as the after-school and before-school programs will not operate that day.
 
In order to comply with state law, students are required to make up days missed when school is cancelled. The superintendent may elect to adjust the schedule following a missed school day rather than using one of the scheduled make-up days that are designated on the academic calendar for the current school year.

We are a weather aware school and use SchoolWay as one way to notify our community of weather related announcements. If you have not had a chance to download the free app from the app store, do it today! You will receive instant push notifications from our district and/or schools.
