Emergency School Closings
Always assume schools are open and in session, unless you hear or see differently from a source listed below.
For school closings, early dismissals and late starts, call the School Closing Hotline at (651) 407-7540
or watch/listen for information on these media outlets:
If winter weather is so severe that schools need to close, parents will also be alerted in three ways as soon as a decision is made:
- A SchoolMessenger phone message and email will be sent to all parents.
- A message will be posted on the homepage of www.isd624.org.
- Messages will be posted on the District's Facebook and Twitter pages.
We know that closing schools can be disruptive, especially for working families. Student and staff safety are our primary concern. Ultimately, the decision to send children to school remains with families. The District supports those decisions that are made for the safety and health of students. There are no negative consequences, and our schools work with families to assure that work is made up when an absence is safety-related.
