Innovation and integrity - an open letter to our 2016 graduates
Dear Class of 2016,
Dear Class of 2016,
The most common reason for school closures is blowing snow and severe weather.
When forecasts are definitive, the district will close or delay school with as much advance notice as possible. When forecasts are less definitive, we will monitor conditions closely and consult with county and state officials prior to making a decision to close or delay schools. In these instances, we will make every effort to communicate with you no later than 5:30 am on the school day in question.
In the event of a delayed start due to inclement weather, we will start school 2.5 hours later than regularly scheduled start times. Bus schedules will also start 2.5 hours later.
School days delayed due to inclement weather also require the following service adjustments:
Community School & Enrichment Programs:
Athletics & Extracurricular activities:
Delayed starts due to inclement weather and school closure notifications are made via the following communication systems: the Messenger notification system (formerly called ShoutPoint), the district website, social media, local and state media including newspapers, television and radio stations, and updates posted to the SVVSD Newsline 303-682-7387. For more information on school closures visit: stvra.in/closures.
When the district remains open, but you believe that weather conditions in your specific area are not safe for your student to attend school, please feel free to contact your school’s attendance clerk to obtain an excused absence for your student.
When severe weather conditions cause you to keep your student at home, he/she will be able to make up any missed schoolwork without penalty.
If you have additional questions or concerns regarding weather-related closures or delayed starts due to inclement weather, please feel free to contact the Department of Communications at 303-682-7321.
