When winter weather arrives, schools may be closed or delayed or buses may use snow routes. These decisions are made by the district early in the morning and are the same for every 4J school.
Snow day notifications: Our school district communicates any decision to change school or bus schedules as quickly as possible in several ways, all well before 6:30 a.m.

No news = No change. If schools and buses are on their regular schedule, there will NOT be an announcement.
School Closure = No school for students. Decision about afternoon/evening activities will be made by noon.
Two-Hour Delay: School starts two hours late and ends at the usual school dismissal time. If a delay occurs on an early release Friday, school will still be dismissed at the early release time.
Monday–Thursday 2-Hour Delay Friday 2-Hour Delay
Snow Routes: Some school bus routes have alternate “snow routes” that avoid higher and steeper elevations. If you need information about your student’s bus route, please see www.4j.lane.edu/transportation/snowroutes.
Parent Choice: Please consider the road conditions in your own area in making your decision about school attendance, and notify the school if your student will be staying home. Parents’ decisions about absences for weather-related safety reasons will be honored.
