School Closing Information
From time to time it may be necessary to cancel school due to inclement weather. This decision is not made lightly, because school attendance is so important. However, school may be cancelled or the school day may begin or end early, when necessary for safety reasons. This information will be communicated to families as promptly as possible, using the following communication methods:
Norfolk Public Schools uses a telephone communication system to alert families of weather-related school closings. When school is closed, the system will call the households of students (for which we have current phone information) with this weather closing information. When a decision is made in the evening, we will try to notify families by 10 p.m. When a decision is made in the morning, we will try to notify families by 6:30 a.m.
Information about school closings is also announced on local radio (WJAG/KEXL, US 92, 94 ROCK/KNEN, and KPNO) and television stations (KTIV Channel 4), and it may be included on their websites.
In the event that Norfolk Public Schools dismisses school for more than three school days for inclement weather, two of these days will be made up. These “snow make up days” are designated on the school calendar for your convenience.
