School Cancellation Procedures
Should there be the need to delay or cancel school due to inclement weather, the decision will be communicated to families and staff using Blackboard Connect, our notification system. Announcements will also be made on MAGIC 104 (104.5 FM), WMWV (93.5 FM), WCSH-TV Channel 6, WGME-TV Channel 13, WMTW-TV Channel 8, and WMUR-TV Channel 9. Announcements are generally made prior to 6:30am and are repeated at the convenience of the stations.
In situations where school can operate if opening time is delayed, the same procedure as outlined will apply. Any decision to delay will be for two hours. Therefore, all school and school bus schedules will be delayed by two hours and dismissal will be at the regular time. Please note that on days when there is a delayed opening, before school care through Project SUCCEED at the elementary schools in Conway will not be open.
In extreme situations where school must be closed early, we will make every effort to coordinate the release with road agents. The Superintendents of SAU#9 and SAU#13 will confer with one another and road agents, make a decision, and notify appropriate contacts an hour prior to the closing.
In Jackson and Conway, if the decision is made to hold a Remote School Instruction Day, that information will be communicated to families and staff.
