When dangerous weather conditions are expected or other unforeseen conditions (road closures, Village emergencies, etc...) that may impact the ability of students and staff to get to school safely at the normal start time, but improving conditions are expected later in the day, we have the option to delay the start of school.
In the event of a late start, all schools will follow the late start schedule and begin 90 minutes later than normal. Buses will pick up 90 minutes later than the regular time; Click here for the late start bus schedule. Lunch will be served as usual.
- Diamond Lake School School will start at 9:10 am
- West Oak Intermediate School will start at 9:30 am
- West Oak Middle School will start at 10:00 am
Dismissal Time: It is important to note that on a late start weather day, dismissal times are the same as a normal school day. After school activities will be conducted as scheduled.
What about Early Childhood during a late start day: AM Early Childhood program will be canceled, however, the PM Early Childhood program will operate on its normal busing pick up schedule.
Excessive snow or extreme cold: School may be canceled if the wind chill, according to the National Weather Service, is 35 degrees below zero or colder at 5:30 am and predicted to remain that low or become worse. School may also be canceled if heavy snow falls, especially when it falls around arrival time. Elementary school students are expected to go outdoors for recess, unless the wind chill factor falls below 15°F.
If you choose to keep your child home on days school is in session, please contact your child’s school to report the absence. If you have questions, feel free to contact your school Principal and/or me at the school and/or District office.
