District winter weather procedures
The Olympia School District wants to ensure every child and staff member arrives at school safely. Winter weather conditions may require the closure, late start or early dismissal of students. Occasionally, weather conditions may also make it necessary to modify bus routes to “emergency routes.”
Please refer to our 2016-17 Snow Bulletin, for important information about our district’s plan during severe weather conditions.
