January 23, 2019 – TWO-HOUR LATE START


All schools will open two-hours late today. Significant accumulations of snow that fell overnight followed by the rain falling this morning has created very difficult driving conditions on roads throughout the district. In order to give Spokane and Stevens County crews to plow area roads (and to allow families and staff to dig themselves out!), we will delay the start of the school day by two hours.


Bus pick-up times and school start times will move forward by two hours. Morning preschool will be canceled. All schools will end the day according to their regular schedules and buses will transport students home at the normal time. All after-school activities will take place as scheduled unless there is notification otherwise later in the day.
