School Closures Due to Weather
Each year, Springfield Public Schools activates its “inclement weather” team to assess whether schools will closed, delayed, or operating as usual when a weather forecast predicts possible snow or ice. Staff members check the condition of district bus routes by driving them between 4:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Decisions are typically made no later than 6:30 a.m.
There are several ways for you to find out if the weather has affected your student(s)’ school day:
- Find up-to-date weather information online at http://www.springfield.k12.or.us/weather.
- You can also click on “Weather” under Hot Topics on the homepage.
- Tune in to your favorite local TV or radio station.
- Check the district’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
- Sign up for automatic text or email alerts via FlashAlert (flashalert.net).
- Note that while the FlashAlert system is our primary means of communication, people should double-check another source if the system is down or if they have any questions.
In the event of a weather closure, all after-school activities are cancelled, including athletic games, practices, and building rentals. If the weather causes a delayed start, morning kindergartens are cancelled. If buses are on snow routes that will be communicated via the same channels listed above. Snow routes are posted at www.springfield.k12.or.us/busroutes.
