other emergencies require the closing of school, the following procedures are in effect:

  • The decision to close school is usually made by the Superintendent between 5:00 and 6:00 a.m.
  • If a decision to close or delay school the night before is reached, notification will be immediately released.
  • A voice messaging system may deliver an automated message detailing the cancelation or delay.
  • Extra-curricular activities will be canceled at West Shore Elementary, Torrey Hill Intermediate and the Lake Fenton Middle School if school is closed.
