In light of this week’s early snowfall, we would like to share with you how Lakeville Area Schools communicate if school is delayed, must close early, or is canceled. School, programs and activities may be closed and/or canceled by the Superintendent in the event of extreme weather conditions.
How to find out about snow days
Upon a decision to close, delay school or dismiss early, all PreK-12 families will receive a phone call, text message and email to the emergency contact listed in their Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Now is a great time to make sure your emergency contact information is up-to-date. To do so, contact your school office or log-in to your Parent Portal account and click the user icon in the upper right corner, then click “settings” and “contact preferences.” Update your preferred email and phone number for calls and texts, and language.
School closings will also be posted on the District website at isd194.org and on the District’s Facebook page @LakevilleAreaSchools, Twitter page @LakevilleAreaPS and Instagram page @LakevilleAreaSchools. An official announcement will be made on TV stations WCCO (Channel 4), KSTP (Channel 5), KMSP (Channel 9), and KARE (Channel 11).
Student expectations for snow/FLEX days
On days when school is cancelled because of bad weather, Lakeville Area Schools may implement Flexible Learning Days, or “FLEX Days,” for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. Instead of coming to the school building, on a FLEX Day K-12 students will continue their learning from home. The first snow day of the school year will not be a FLEX Day. The Superintendent may call a FLEX Day after the first snow day. For more information about FLEX Days, please visit: isd194.org/academics/flex-days. Please note, FLEX Days used to continue learning during snow days will have different expectations than Flex Wednesdays in the Hybrid Model. Your school will communicate expectations clearly.
When adverse conditions exist, please know buses may run late at times. Parents are advised to make provisions for the care of their children in the event of a school closing, late start or early dismissal.
