Inclement Weather Policy

Inclement Weather Policy

Decisions regarding the cancellation of school can be challenging but must be made with the safety of our children and employees being of paramount importance. The decision to cancel school due to inclement weather will be announced as soon as possible. We strive to announce the cancellation as early as possible.

Cancellation notifications will occur in the following ways:

  • District phone call
  • District text message
  • District website
  • District social media pages - Facebook, X/Twitter, Instagram - @CarthageR9SD 
  • ParentSquare App notification
  • Local radio stations
  • Local television stations

The same process and notification will occur if school is released early due to inclement weather. 

  • AMI Days count as an academic day and students are expected to complete AMI work as assigned by their teachers. 
  • AMI work may include paper packets that were sent home earlier in the year or virtual assignments.
  • AMI work must be turned in when students return to school and will be graded regularly.
  • AMI days do not lengthen the calendar for our academic year.  State law says we are allowed to use 6 AMI days per academic year. 

Thank you in advance for your patience as we address the changing road conditions caused by inclement weather this winter. Please remember we will always put the safety of our children first when making the cancellation decision.
