Snow Day / School Closure Plan
North Sanpete School District will do everything possible to hold school on scheduled school days. We have had very few interruptions over the years and plan to hold school every day. However, if holding school is not possible, the plan below will be followed.
In the event that roads are impassible early in the morning, but it appears they will improve after daylight, a “Late Start Day” will be declared. In the event of a late start, all district operations will simply start two hours later than normal. Morning kindergarten and preschool will be cancelled. Mid and end of day schedules and bus routes will be maintained as normally scheduled.
In the event of a severe power outage, inability to heat a school building during cold weather, or severe weather, where vulnerable individuals (including small children) are required to stay indoors; schools will be closed. Secondary schools may be able to conduct instruction via student and teacher technology devices for a very limited time, but other school days missed will be made up by shortening Spring Break.
In the event of a power outage, safe school event or other unforeseeable crisis, the district will take every possible step to keep students until regular release, including moving to a nearby campus or community facility. If however students must be sent home, the district will notify parents as outlined below.
Parents will be notified via text and email addresses provided by parents during online registration. KMTI will be notified and NSSD website and Facebook pages will make periodic announcements as information becomes available.
