With our recent winter weather experiences, we want to inform you as to how we make inclement weather decisions, and specific adjustments this year.
While Mountain Song is not a District 11 school, it does reside in School District 11.
We generally observe D11’s closure and delayed start schedule for inclement weather during our school calendar days that coincide with D-11, with the following exceptions.
- For days that Mountain Song is in session and D-11 is not, the decision will be made by the School’s Executive Leadership Team.
- This year, we also have a Remote Learning option, and we may call a Remote Learning Day instead of a snow day in order to limit the number of days we might need to add to the calendar if too many school cancellation days occur. Our decision about Remote Learning may not coincide with D-11’s decision. Since the state requires more instruction time for middle school students than for elementary students, we may make different decisions for each level.
We notify families through our automated notification system, post notices on our website and social media, and alert local news stations.
We also recognize that weather in our region may vary widely, and that we have many families residing outside of the D-11 area. We encourage families to make wise decisions about coming to school based on safety. Such absences will be excused.
The Executive Leadership Team
