Emergency School Closures and Delays

In the event of bad weather, district officials will make the decision by 5:15 a.m. that day to close all or selected schools or to delay the start of school.

First information is sent to the Emergency Messages website linked to below, then specific news media listed below are notified of the closures and delays. If no announcement is made it’s safe to assume that the district is operating as usual.

Messages will also be posted to SKPS’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.

School Messenger Telephone Notification

If schools are closed or start times delayed, all students and staff will get a recorded message to the phone number on record with the district. This message will tell you about school cancellation, delay to start times, or district closure. Calls begin going out at 6 a.m. Make sure your contact information is up to date.

  • Families who need to update their phone number should contact their school.
  • Staff should go on the Employee Self Services website and update their information.

Remind App

This year, we will also be utilizing the Remind notification system. Through this system, you will receive text messages from the district and/or your child’s school. We recommend you take a moment to download the app and manage your notification preferences to ensure you receive your messages in the best way that works for you.

Local Media Announcements

The media will mention the district only if there is a delay or closure. If you do not hear any information, it’s safe to assume district schools are open or have resumed their regular schedule.
