School Delays and Closings
School will either be delayed or closed on days when weather and driving/road conditions are hazardous and dangerous for students and staff. The forecasting and predicting of hazardous weather in Ohio is always challenging, and the decision to cancel or delay school must be made very early in the morning. Delays and closings will almost always be announced by 6:30 AM. If there is no announcement to cancel or delay school by 6:30 AM, you may safely assume that school will be in session.
Parents will be notified by the Blackboard Connect Telephone Notification System in the event school is delayed or cancelled. The "Blackboard Connect" phone call and parent notification may take several minutes to reach your home if there are a number of area school delays or closings.
If school is delayed, Louisville Schools will only delay the opening of school for two hours. Rarely, if ever, will school be delayed and then cancelled. All bus runs and school starting times will simply be delayed by two hours. There will be no AM pre-school when school is delayed for two hours, and no breakfast will be served in any of the school cafeterias.
A two-hour delay simply means that school will be delayed by two hours in the morning. Students should report to school or to their bus stop two hours later than their normal times. Buses will "pick-up" students two hours later than the normal pick-up times. School buildings will operate on an adjusted schedule, and students will be dismissed from school at their regular times and at their regular bus return trip times.
