Inclement Weather

We would like to share important inclement weather information so that your family can be prepared in the event severe weather impacts our normal school schedules and operations.

Anytime our community experiences inclement weather, our operations team and I are driving roads throughout the evening and early morning, and in communication with various city and town officials, closely monitoring weather conditions. Based on road conditions and weather forecasts, we will make one of three decisions: 

  1. To keep a normal in-person school schedule
  2. Delay the start of school by two hours 
  3. Shift to a shortened online learning day

Our first priority, as long as it is deemed safe by our team in consultation with other municipality officials, will be in-person learning.

Parents will continue to have the choice to obtain an excused absence for their student if for any reason they are unable to attend or choose not to participate in a shortened online learning schedule, or if weather conditions in their area are problematic for transporting their student to school when we have in-person learning. When the district remains open to in-person learning, but you believe that weather conditions in your specific area are problematic for your student to attend school, please feel free to contact your school’s attendance clerk to obtain an excused absence for your student. If severe weather conditions cause you to keep your student at home, they will be able to make up any missed schoolwork without penalty. Webex will not be available on these days.

2-Hour Delayed Start

If the weather is such that the normal start is problematic due to weather conditions, we may implement a 2-hour delayed start. A delayed start will only be used if the delay will accommodate warmer temperatures at the bus stops and/or a substantive improvement in road conditions.

2-Hour Delayed Start Schedules

In the event of a delayed start due to inclement weather, we will start school 2 hours later than regularly scheduled start times. Bus schedules will also start 2 hours later. (This is a slight change from our normal late-start days that are built into the yearly academic calendar in which students arrive 2.5 hours later.) 

School days delayed due to inclement weather also require the following service adjustments:

Preschool: 

  • Morning Classes: Will be canceled
  • Afternoon Classes: Will follow normal schedules
  • Wrap-around care will open when the school opens

Spark! Discovery Preschool:

  • Morning Classes: Will be canceled
  • Afternoon Classes: Will follow normal schedules
  • Wrap-around childcare will begin at 11:00 a.m.

Kindergarten Programs: 

  • Full-day Kindergarten Classes: Will begin 2 hours later than their regularly scheduled start time

Community School & Enrichment Programs: 

  • Before School: Will be canceled
  • After School: Will follow normal schedules

Meals: 

  • Breakfast: Will not be provided
  • Lunch: Will be provided

Innovation Center and Career Elevation and Technology Center:

  • Information regarding Innovation Center and Career Elevation Technology Center classes will be shared directly by the programs.

Transportation: 

  • Out-of-district: Will be canceled along with all field trips that were scheduled to depart before noon, with the exception of transportation for students with disabilities.
  • Transportation for students with disabilities attending out-of-district schools will begin 2 hours later than their regularly scheduled start time.
  • In-district: Will operate routes 2 hours later than their regularly scheduled start time

Athletics & Extracurricular activities: 

  • After School: Will follow normal schedules

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, and local and state media including newspapers and television. For more information on school closures visit: http://stvra.in/closures or to update your notification settings in Infinite Campus, visit http://stvra.in/messenger.

Shortened Online Learning Days

When inclement weather closes our schools to in-person learning, we will be instituting a shortened online learning schedule. During these closures to in-person learning, students will receive synchronous direct instruction on a shortened schedule, with additional asynchronous time to complete assignments.

Instructional time is vitally important to supporting the continued academic success and well-being of our students, however we will be using a shortened schedule on these days so that families also have time to navigate other challenges that come with inclement weather.

If for any reason you decide that your student will not be able to participate in the online learning day, please contact the school office for an excused absence, which is consistent with our attendance procedures on a normal in-person school day.

Teachers will be posting their Webex links to Seesaw (grades K-3) or Schoology (grades 4-12), or they may choose to email those directly to students and/or parents. Links will be posted by 8:30 am.

Please click on the grade level of your student below for specific schedule information.

Preschool Students

We are pleased to offer parents and families an opportunity to sustain a preschooler’s learning despite inclement weather or other unplanned disruptions. We are fortunate to offer these supports in order to provide each and every child with a strong foundation. Flexible and family friendly 20-30 minute learning activities will be sent to you by your child’s preschool teacher via email or the SeeSaw application.

When schools are closed to in-person learning due to inclement weather, transportation and other activities, both in- and out-of-district, may also be canceled. Decisions regarding after-school athletics, activities, or events will be made by noon on the day of the online learning schedule.

Communication Processes 

When forecasts are definitive, the district will make every effort to notify families of impacts to school operations the prior evening. When forecasts are less definitive, we will monitor conditions closely and consult with county and state officials prior to making a decision. Often the forecast is tentative and we need additional time to monitor conditions. In these cases, we will notify you no later than 5:30 a.m. if there will be any impacts to the day’s learning schedule.

Notifications for school disruptions due to inclement weather are made via the following communication systems: the Messenger notification system in Infinite Campus (email, voice, or text based on your notification settings), the district website, Twitter (@svvsd), and local and state media including newspapers and television.
