How Weather Could Impact School Days

 

There are times when weather conditions cause us to cancel school. We do not make that decision lightly because we understand canceling school can create difficulties for families. 


There are a number of things to consider when determining whether to have school, like road conditions, the safety of school parking lots and sidewalks, and the weather forecast for the rest of the day.


In Missouri, schools have the opportunity to use AMI Days. AMI stands for Alternative Methods of Instruction. During an AMI Day, students in grades K-6 are expected to work on paper packets that have been sent home. Middle School and High School students are expected to work on assignments that are posted in Canvas.


On days when there is inclement weather, the superintendent will make a mass phone call and explain whether it is a Snow Day or an AMI Day. Families will also receive a text message and email. The announcement will also be posted on the district website and social media pages. 


Once the maximum number of AMI hours are used, the district will begin having make-up days. These will be held on Mondays. 


If you are the parent of a K-6 student and have not received a paper packet, please contact the office of your child’s school or click this link to access the AMI packets.
