Snow eLearning Day Information
Posted on 11/07/2018

It looks like winter weather is suddenly upon us. With that in mind, when there is a possibility of inclement weather, we have the option of:

2 Hour Delay
School Closed - eLearning Day
School Closed

The intention will be to use eLearning Days on the 1st and 2nd consecutive days due to weather. If there are more than 2 consecutive days, then those days would be closed and made up at a later date (first week of Spring Break). 

Notifications will be sent regarding delays/closings via School Messenger, the SV website, Twitter, and local news.
