Inclement Weather Codes

The following codes will be used this year to communicate with you during times of inclement weather. Families are encouraged to look for official information on the division’s social media pages and website, in addition to announcements being sent through email to all families. To receive email notification, please ensure your child’s school has your updated email and contact information. Codes will also be shared with local media after the division has made the information available through its own communication vehicles mentioned above. We greatly value and appreciate your partnership as we continue to work together throughout this school year.
