EARLY DISMISSAL BECAUSE OF WEATHER Because of the difficulty in contacting parents, early dismissal will take place only in an emergency. In the case of early dismissal, an announcement of release time will be made on KNCO (AM 830) and KVMR (FM 89.5) at least 30 minutes prior to dismissal. Every effort will be made to contact parents by phone using the Connect-Ed telephone system and with personal telephone calls. • Parents should notify the school of an alternate or emergency shelter in case of early dismissal if the parent is absent from home. • Students at the K-4 level will NOT be sent home on the bus unless parent contact can be made.
