    WWS weather delay/closing information


    Thank you for your patience during local inclement weather events.  Please know that all decisions related to weather delays, closings or early dismissals are made in the best interest of the safety of WWS students and staff.  While weather can be unpredictable, we take great care with our decision making process. During inclement weather events, WWS strives to communicate decisions as soon as possible so that childcare or transportation arrangements can be made. We recognize the inconvenience these times can cause, and we thank you again for your patience!  

     Here are some factors in the decision making process:

    Weather patterns

    Road conditions

    Temperature/wind chill factors


    Building conditions

    Transportation effectiveness



    Bell schedule: 2-hour delay (Buses will arrive approximately 2 hours later than normal)

    No developmental preschool in the event of a 2-hour delay.
