As you are aware, on occasion it is necessary to cancel school because of inclement North Idaho winter weather. Typically it is icy conditions, not snow that presents a problem. We also have the option of a 2-hour late start when it appears the weather could improve enough to safely open school for students and staff members later in the morning. Starting school later will also provide city and county road crews with more time to clear roadways, parking lots and
sidewalks.The decision to keep school open, close, or delay the start by 2 hours is announced by 5:30AM.
