SCHOOL DELAY:

When the decision to delay school is made, the schedule for elementary schools will change. A delay to the start of school will result in elementary schools beginning classes two hours later than normal. A delay in the start of school will result in a 10:55AM start time instead of the normal start time of 8:55AM. Bus pick-up will be two hours later than the normal pick-up time.
 

SCHOOL CANCELLATIONS:

If conditions warrant school cancellation the Portage Township Schools will endeavor to notify the media prior to 6:00AM. If a school delay is announced and weather conditions do not improve prior to the regular scheduled elementary pick-up schedule, a school cancellation announcement will be released to the media.
 

EMERGENCY DISMISSAL:

Early dismissal due to weather conditions or other safety related concerns will be announced at least one and one-half (1 1/2 ) hours prior to the actual dismissal times. If all schools are dismissed, the secondary schools will be dismissed prior to dismissing elementary schools. A notification of this effect will be issued to the media and will also be posted on the Internet.
