School officials make decisions about school closing based on weather information, directly checking road conditions, communication with street departments, police agencies, and neighboring school districts. A School Closing or Delay will be announced as early as possible, but it is not always feasible to predict if a closing or delay is needed the night before. The following is a list of the emergency options used by Washington Community Schools. Please discuss these with your children and plan what to do in each instance.
All Washington Community Schools will be closed.
Two Hour Delay:
-All Washington Community Schools will have a two-hour delay in starting school.
- If conditions worsen during a delay, schools may close.
- Busses will run approximately two hours later than usual.
- Washington JH and Washington HS will begin at 10:05 am.
- All Elementary Schools will begin at 10:00 am.
- Breakfast will NOT be served.
- If a two-hour delay occurs on a Wednesday, there will be no Early Release.
All Washington Community Schools will be closed. Elearning assignments will be posted by 9:00 am.
