NORTH BEND SCHOOL DISTRICT INCLEMENT WEATHER CLOSURE/DELAYED START INFORMATION
HOW WE DECIDE? The safety of North Bend School District students and staff is the primary consideration for any decision regarding closures, cancellations, and delayed starts. Additionally, the suitability of our facilities for occupation is thoughtfully considered as well as the condition of local infrastructure.
In any situation where safety may be compromised, District Office leadership work with appropriate District Departments and/or regional agencies to make informed decisions regarding risk factors.
WHO DECIDES? The Mid Columbia Bus Company, the Superintendent and district leadership will survey road conditions, evaluate the weather forecast and make any closure/late start decisions by 5:30 a.m.
DELAY OR CANCEL? If the weather is expected to improve but drive times may be slow, the district may opt for a two-hour delay. We always try to avoid canceling school midday.
