Inclement Weather Protocol

With any weather systems, the severity and timing is unpredictable. There will be three different inclement weather protocols: School Closure, Early Release, and Soft Start.  With School Closure, you will be notified as early as possible before school begins that there will be no school for that day.  An Early Release is when the weather becomes hazardous during the school day and you will be notified to pick up your child(re) and all afterschool activities will be cancelled. A Soft Start is when traveling to school in the early morning becomes a safety issue. Normally, the Soft Start will end at 10:00 a.m. This means that class will begin at 10:00 am but you are welcome to bring your child(ren) at any time between 7:00 am and 10:00 am. Since families live anywhere in the Cheyenne area, it is impossible to know if all the roads are hazardous therefore you can make the judgment if your family's safety is a concern. If you feel it is, let the office know and your tardy or absence will be excused.  Notifications will be pushed out on SchoolCast by text and a phone call.
