The Pioneer School District’s decision making process:
If the roads are not safe, schools will be closed for the day. If there is a chance the roads could clear in a few hours, we may run a two-hour delay. On occasion, a two-hour delay may lead to a full closure if road conditions do not improve.
Finally, once students are in school, it would be an extreme occasion to send them home early for weather related issues. If conditions dictated an early closure, we would follow the communication protocol listed above.
