Delays & Closures
The Transportation Department has an important role in determining the status of schools on inclement weather days. The following factors are considered when determining delays or closures:
- Safety of roads specific to bus transportation;
- Safety of schools' facilities (appropriate heat, cleared lots, etc.);
- Safety of students traveling to designated bus stops;
- Safety of students in 'non-transported' areas where students either walk or are transported by parents.
DOWNED TREES AND POWER LINES MAKE SCHOOL BUS ROUTES HAZARDOUS!
There may be an occasion when a school delay or closing decision only affects the Cascade Mountain Zone. See the fact sheet for a full explanation.
