Inclement Weather Procedures

RGSD logo

We have reached the time of year when temperatures drop and we must make sure that we are prepared for inclement weather and the impact it may have on in-person learning. 

The District's top priority is always the health and safety of students, staff and the public. If schools can safely be opened, Riverview Gardens School District will do its best to deliver education programs and services by opening all or some of its schools and providing bus services.

In the event that we must consider canceling in-person learning due to inclement weather or adverse conditions, RGSD will make every effort to notify parents as early as possible via the following sources of information:

What Can Parents Do?
  • Monitor information sites indicated above
  • Make sure to update all emergency contact information provided to the school – including phone numbers, address and names of contacts
  • Keep phone lines open; please avoid contacting schools
  • Develop a back-up plan for child care and transportation in case of early dismissal or closure
  • If schools are open, dress your child warmly and cover head and hands; dress in layers
  • Ensure your child has on boots or leather shoes to keep feet dry
  • If possible transport your walker to school

Should the District decide to go to an Early Release Schedule due to inclement weather, schools will operate at the following times:

High: 7:30 AM - 12:15 PM

Elementary: 8:05 AM - 12:50 PM

Middle: 8:45 AM - 3:45 PM
