Dismissal Precautions (JGFC)

In the event of an emergency, such as a blizzard or any other event during the school day which interferes with the normal conduct of school affairs, school will be dismissed only upon action of the superintendent or designated representative. The superintendent shall formulate plans and procedures to instruct all students and their parents of the rule and regulations pertaining to emergency school dismissal.

If adverse weather conditions exist, the building principals will consult with the superintendent concerning dismissal of school.

Approved: NOVEMBER 18, 1996


School will not be dismissed because of storms that arise during the school day as long as it is feasible for students and teachers to remain at school in safety.

Parents are urged not to send their children to school when storm conditions exist or when road conditions are such as to create a definite hazard.

If the superintendent decides the weather to be of such a nature that the safety of students is threatened, he will notify the following Kansas City radio/TV stations and have a school closing announcement broadcast: WDAF 61 AM, 102 FM radio; KAYQ 1190 AM radio; KCKN 134 AM, 94 FM radio; KMBZ 980 AM radio KPRS 590 AM, 103.3 FM radio; KCMO 81 AM, 95 FM radio and TV; WHB 71 AM radio; KBEA 1480 AM radio KFIX radio; KMBC TV and WDAF TV. Other stations in the area may receive the announcement via the wire service and air it also.

Every student will be notified of these rules and regulations at the beginning of each school term.

In the event of a bomb scare or similar emergency, the principal may immediately vacate the school and conduct the students to a place of safety.

The principal will notify the police station, the county sheriff's office or the Kansas Highway Patrol of the threat and request a thorough inspection of the buildings and grounds.

If students are evacuated from the building, if no threat is found to the safety of the students and if there is sufficient time remaining in the school day to warrant continuation of classes, school may be resumed.

Emergency procedures will be formulated by the superintendent and administrative staff covering situations where the local building administrator or staff has been isolated or incapacitated by any group during an emergency situation. Such plans are to be held in strict confidence by each staff member having a direct responsibility in the implementation of the plan.
