Inclement Weather Information

School Closings and Delays Board
 
If we have a weather-related delay, dismissal, or cancellation, we will try to make the decision and call as early as possible to allow you maximum time to make alternate plans for your child.

Please inform the main office at your child's school when your email, home/cell phone number or address changes so we have up-to-date contact information. This is extremely important in case of emergencies and weather notifications.
 

Our school utilizes the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages, straight to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts and more. To see how you can participate in this free service, Click Here

Breakfast
A modified breakfast is served during 2-hour delays. 

Bus/Transportation
If you take a bus to school, your bus will arrive to your regular stop two hours after your normal bus time. For example, if your bus pick-up time is typically 7:30 a.m., your bus would arrive around 9:30 a.m. during a 2-hour delay.
This document provides a brief overview of the criteria that governs Deer Lakes' decision to close or delay school on a given day. It also outlines some of the school district's procedures during inclement weather.
