QUILCENE EMERGENCY WEATHER SCHOOL CLOSURE INFO
During the upcoming winter months there may be certain weather conditions that will require school delays or closures. Every family should have a plan covering what to do when children arrive home early due to early closure of school. As soon as the district has made the decision to either start school later than normal or close completely, the information will be sent to the Public Schools Emergency Communications System. It will then be broadcast via radio/TV stations in our area. You can also log onto the emergency communications system webpage at http://www.schoolreport.org. You can view the current message and/or sign up to receive e-mails whenever there is a message. You can also access this website by logging onto the district’s website at www.quilcene.wednet.edu and clicking on the “Emergency Closure Info” button under site shortcut on the homepage.
TV STATIONS: KOMO 4, KING 5, KONG 6/16, KIRO 7, KVOS 12, KCPQ 13
Do not call the radio and tv stations or the school. Jammed telephone lines only compound emergencies. No announcement means normal operations.
If the announcement says “Limited Bus Transportation” the following bus schedules will be in effect:
LINGER LONGER/U.S. HWY 101 SOUTH/FISH HATCHERY ROUTE: The bus will not travel up to Hiddendale. Students need to be transported to the Fish Hatchery Road and will be picked up/dropped off by the Big Quilcene Bridge.
NO PRESCHOOL ON LATE START DAYS.
PLEASE REFER TO THIS INFORMATION DURING THE WINTER IF NECESSARY. THE DISTRICT WILL ATTEMPT TO KEEP THE BUSES ON SCHEDULE AS MUCH AS ROAD CONDITIONS PERMIT.
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO KEEP THE SCHOOL SECRETARY UP TO DATE ON ANY FAMILY PHONE NUMBER/ADDRESS CHANGES OR EMERGENCY CONTACTS CHANGES. THANK YOU!
