In the event that our weather systems change and Belgrade School District faces inclement weather conditions, the following message is from Godfrey Saunders:
Like any public service, people count on our schools to remain open. Our role in the community goes beyond providing educational services:
- A significant number of students in the district would remain home alone without supervision if their school had an unscheduled closure. Many families find it challenging to adjust work schedules on short notice. We encourage families to have a plan in case of school closure.
- A functioning school building provides warmth and safety in addition to instruction.
- Many students rely on their schools for breakfast and lunch. These meals are convenient and provide nutritional needs for children who may otherwise go without.
Notification of school cancellation or delayed start will be made by 6:30 am each school day where the schedule is altered. Parents will be notified via Infinite Campus Messenger, the district website and social media, as well as TV / radio. In inclement weather we encourage parents to make attendance decisions for their children based on their specific ability to get to school safely.
