Days missed for inclement weather or other causes may be made up in order to comply with district policy and state statutes. We recognize that the closing of school is a “judgment call” and the decision is always made in the interest of student safety. This includes both safety in transportation and the recognition that many children do not have an adult in the home, should school be closed. School will therefore be closed only under serious conditions.
