Winter Weather: How to know when schools are closed
Sign up now for snow day alert texts
When winter weather arrives, schools may be closed or delayed or buses may use snow routes. School districts decide early in the morning whether there is a need to change the school schedule or bus routes. These decisions are made districtwide and are the same for every 4J school.
There are several ways to find out if there is a change on snowy or icy days:
• Text-message alerts via Twitter — to sign up, just text FOLLOW 4JWEATHER to 40404
• 4J website, www.4j.lane.edu
• KRVM 91.9 FM
• Other radio and television news stations
If there is a school closure or other change, the school district will announce it before 6:30 a.m. If schools and buses are on their regular schedule, there will NOT be an announcement.
Parents of students who ride school buses that have alternate snow routes have been informed of what to do. Snow route information can be found on the district website atwww.4j.lane.edu/transportation/snowroutes.
If school is in session, families are encouraged to consider road conditions in their areas and make their own decisions based on safety. Parents’ individual decisions about school attendance will be honored.
