Before deciding to close school due to extreme winter weather conditions, Superintendent Valeria Silva consults with experts both inside and outside of the district, including assistant superintendents, city officials, weather experts and the SPPS Transportation Department. The department monitors road conditions before making any final recommendations to the Superintendent.
As a general guideline, students should wait 10 to 15 minutes for their bus. However, parents should use their judgment when allowing their child to wait for the bus past the scheduled time, especially on cold days. We make every effort to provide on-time bus service and we are always working to make improvements.
