2020-21 snow bulletin
Snowy weather photo Every year, inevitably, snow or severe weather conditions lead to a delay in start times or the closure of our school buildings. This year, with most of our students learning remotely, we have modified plans for school schedule changes, as well as the way we will communicate with families about inclement weather.

Important: As most students are learning this year remotely, even when start times are delayed or schools are closed due to inclement weather, remote learning will continue on regular schedule. The advantage to transitioning to a remote learning day, as opposed to canceling school, is to alleviate the need for makeup days at the end of the academic calendar in June.

Students should be prepared for potential school schedule changes by making a habit of having their Chromebooks at home and charged every day.

The Olympia School District will inform you as soon as possible when school schedules change through our district messaging system, our district website, and social media platforms.

We also encourage you to monitor local radio and/or television stations for up-to-date information about weather-related building closures or delays.

On rare occasions, weather conditions may make it necessary to modify school bus routes. When that occurs, district and media outlets will announce the use of “snow routes” or “emergency routes.”
