ATA: Week of 2~4~19

Winter Weather – Reminder:

Winter Weather: Snow Day Decisions and Notifications  

When winter weather arrives, schools may be closed or delayed or buses may use snow routes. These decisions are made districtwide and are the same for every 4J school.

How the decision is made:

Typically, weather-related school schedule decisions are made in the early morning, before school, when current weather conditions can be assessed. We believe students and families are best served when we are open. Our main concern and the reason for any school closure is the safety of our students and staff.

How to find out if there is a change: 

If the district decides to make a change to the school schedule or bus routes, it is communicated as quickly as possible in several ways, all well before 6:30 a.m. If schools and buses are on their regular schedule, there will NOT be an announcement.

What does the announcement mean?

School Closure: There is no school for students, although some staff will be at work. The district will decide by noon about whether any after-school student activities or community use of buildings may take place.

Two-Hour Delay: School will start two hours late and end at the usual dismissal time. If a delay occurs on an early release Friday, school will still be dismissed at the early release time. Buses will drive cautiously, adjusting to conditions, so pickup and return may be delayed.

Snow Routes: ATA does not have any snow routes. More information is at www.4j.lane.edu/transportation/snowroutes

Parent Choice: When school is in session during wintry weather, families are encouraged to consider the road conditions in their areas, make their own decisions based on safety, and notify the school if their student will be staying home. Parents’ decisions about student absences for hazardous weather safety reasons will be honored.

Clima invernal: Decisiones y notificaciones para días de nieve

Cuando hay mal tiempo en el invierno, las escuelas pueden cerrar o comenzar tarde y los autobuses pueden utilizar las rutas de nieve. Estas decisiones son hechas para el distrito entero y aplican a todas las escuelas de 4J.

Cómo se toma la decisión:

Normalmente, las decisiones sobre cambios del horario de clases por el clima inclemente se toman en la mañana antes del inicio de las clases, cuando se pueden evaluar las condiciones del clima. Creemos que servimos mejor a los alumnos y a las familias cuando las escuelas están abiertas. Nuestra prioridad y el motivo de cualquier cierre de escuelas es la seguridad de nuestros alumnos y personal.

Cómo saber si hay un cambio:

Si el distrito decide cambiar el horario de clases o las rutas de autobuses, esto será comunicado lo mas pronto posible en varias maneras, siempre antes de las 6:30 a.m. Si no hay ningún cambio de horario o de rutas de autobuses, NO habrá ningún anuncio.

¿Qué significa el anuncio?

Cierre de escuela (“Schools Closed”): No hay clases para los alumnos, aunque pueda ser que algunos miembros del personal estén trabajando. El distrito decidirá antes del mediodía si se permitirán actividades extracurriculares o el uso de las instalaciones por miembros de la comunidad.

Retraso de dos horas (“Two-Hour Delay”): Las clases comenzarán dos horas mas tarde y terminarán a la hora normal en un día escolar regular.  Si el retraso ocurre en un viernes, los estudiantes saldrán a la hora de salida temprana. Los autobuses conducirán cautelosamente, ajustándose a las condiciones, así que el horario para recoger y dejar a los estudiantes puede retrasarse.

Rutas de nieve (“Snow Routes”): ATA no tiene ningún ruta de nieve. Podrá encontrar más información en www.4j.lane.edu/transportation/snowroutes

Opción de los padres (“Parent Choice”): Cuando la escuela este en sesión durante el clima invernal, se les urge a las familias considerar las condiciones de las carreteras donde viven, tomar su propia decisión basada en la seguridad, y notificar a la escuela si su estudiante no asistirá a la escuela. Las decisiones de los padres sobre la ausencia de sus estudiantes por razones de seguridad en el clima inclemente serán respetadas.

Podrá encontrar más información en inglés en el sitio web www.4j.lane.edu/weather
