Inclement Weather/Abbreviated Day/Early Dismissal/Cancellation of School

ABBREVIATED DAY

The abbreviated day schedule is a shortened school day that begins TWO HOURS LATER than the regular schedule but ends at the regular time.  Carlos Rey will utilize the following instructional times:

 

CARLOS REY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (K-5)   9:50 A.M. – 2:00 P.M.
LUNCH WILL BE SERVED AT THE REGULAR TIME IN THE CAFETERIA.

 

The most common use of the abbreviated day schedule occurs when severe weather causes street conditions that would endanger the safety of students to school and school employees to work.

The reporting time for all employees will be delayed up to a maximum of two hours, on an abbreviated day schedule.  Administrators and custodial personnel are expected to report as near to their normal starting time as possible, to prepare the building for the school day. 

The decision to institute an abbreviated schedule will be made and announced through the news media no later than 5:30 a.m.

CANCELLATION OF SCHOOL

Weather conditions occasionally worsen to the point that makes it necessary to close the schools.  This announcement will be made no later than 8:00 a.m.  All students, parents and employees are encouraged to listen to the radio or watch television for announcements concerning changes in the school schedule. Once the Superintendent has cancelled school the cancellation shall include all extracurricular activities including athletic practices.

Teachers will remain for thirty minutes after students are released for early dismissal to assist with accounting for students.  The Principal may require that staff remain longer if needed.

EARLY DISMISSAL

If severe weather conditions materialize during the school day that would necessitate an early dismissal of students, please contact our office we will then recommend and feasible plan.
During a district wide early dismissal, it will not be possible to schedule buses to pick up elementary school students at the same time. Accommodations will be made so that buses are not scheduled to pick up students at two elementary schools at the same time.

To avoid conflicts in scheduling buses during a district wide inclement weather dismissal, Carlos Rey will follow the same dismissal time that will be announced for West Mesa High School.  School buses will be scheduled to arrive according to the high school schedule.
