School Closure/Delay Notification
During inclement weather conditions, the decision process whether to close or delay school is as follows:
Transportation supervisor drives all routes to assess road conditions
Transportation supervisor contacts the Superintendent and advises him of road conditions
Superintendent confers with other local superintendents
Clarkston Superintendent makes final decision to keep school open, closed, implement a two-hour delay or early release
When our District experiences winter weather, such as snow and ice, there are some areas in the district where we are not comfortable sending our buses. As a result, we have established "snow routes". Those routes will have alternative stops to pick-up and drop-off students. If your route number is not listed below, then that bus will run the normal route. If the district has a 2 hour delay start time, snow routes are automatically in effect. If streets listed below are slick, we will use the alternative stops.
No Walk Land pick-up (Elementary only). Students will need to go to Hillyard Drive and Walk Lane. Pick-up times are all 5 minutes later than normal
