While the temperature drops, student’s hope of possible school delays or cancellation goes up. As another Iowa winter encloses upon us, here is the outline of ICCSD’s inclement weather procedures:

Cancellations:

-If after 10 a.m. the forecast indicates the possibility of frostbite after 30 minutes or less, the decision of cancellation will be made before 8 p.m. the night before.

-An excessive amount of snow or ice that prevents buses, students, and employees from reaching school safely will cause a cancellation as well. The district will call the cancellation before 5:30 a.m. the morning of the cancellation.

Delays:

-If the forecast for 6 a.m. the morning of the possible delay indicates the possibility of frostbite after 30 minutes or less, the district will call a delay prior to 8 p.m. the night before. If the conditions are worsening, they will call a delay no later than 6 a.m. This applies to excessive snow and ice.

Early Dismissal:

-If weather should worsen throughout the day, the district will call an early dismissal before 10 a.m. that day. The time dismissed will be determined by severity.
