What happens when inclement weather requires schools to close or start late this year?

Every year it seems snow or severe weather conditions lead to the closure or late start of our schools, and we want to keep you updated about those decisions.

The plan for what happens during a school closure or two-hour late start, as well as the communication protocol and list of emergency snow routes, are outlined in the “Snow Letter: 2021-22” posted on our district website. We will also be emailing the letter directly to all OSD families early next week, sharing on social media platforms, and including in our November issue of our district’s Spotlight on Success newsletter.
