SCHOOL CANCELLATIONS/DELAYS & DISMISSAL PROCEDURES
If MSDWT schools have to be cancelled and this is known before school begins in the morning, this information will be broadcast over several of the Indianapolis television and radio stations, as well as on the District website, Facebook, and Twitter. Decisions to cancel/delay school are usually made by 6 a.m. Parents will be notified through the township’s automated calling system.
There are occasions when the start of school may be delayed two (2) hours. On such days parents are asked to monitor media sources and make the two-hour adjustment. If an elementary school student is normally picked up at 7:30 a.m., the two-hour delay would move that time to 9:30 a.m. If a middle school student is normally picked up at 8:30 a.m., the 2-hour delay would move that time to 10:30 a.m. NO MORNING SPECIAL EDUCATION PRE-SCHOOL WILL BE HELD WHEN SCHOOL HAS BEEN DELAYED 2 HOURS. WHEN DELAYS OCCUR, THE SCHOOL DAY DISMISSAL TIME WILL NOT CHANGE. The AYS Program for registered participants will be held at the regular time unless parents are notified otherwise.
If school has to be dismissed early during the school day, the local media will be notified and parents of students without an emergency plan will be contacted. Please notify the school immediately if your home and/or emergency phone numbers on file are ever changed. Unless different information is on file at your child’s school and signed by the parent, student(s) will be sent home by the usual way-either by bus, walking, or by car.
