Our buses will provide limited transportation when snow and/or icy roads result in hazardous conditions. Please visit our list of ‘Snow Routes’ to see which bus your child should take. Bus schedule timing is less predictable in snowy weather; students should plan on getting to their stops a few minutes early. Please don’t wait until it snows to look at the snow schedule. Many of our buses make a very limited number of stops.
NOTE: If ‘Snow Routes’ are announced, they will be in effect for the entire day, regardless of weather conditions.
Generally speaking, if there is a storm or if snow begins to fall during the school day, we believe the safest place for children is in our schools. However, weather conditions may develop during the day which may require early dismissal. Efforts will be made to announce early dismissals over radio and TV stations, as well as the district website, School Messenger System, e-News and the District News and Information line (360-473-1002). Parents are welcome to take their children home during inclement weather conditions, after they check-in with the school’s office.

· Where should your child go if he/she needs help?
· Who will care for your child until you arrive home?
· Is there someone your child can contact to help ease their fears?
