EMERGENCY CLOSINGS

 

 

The Grant Parish School Board authorizes the Superintendent to close the schools in the event of hazardous weather or other emergencies which present threats to the safety of students, staff members, or school property.

 

If students have reported to school, and an emergency arises during the school day, students may be dismissed early.  Such dismissal shall be only by direction of the Superintendent of Schools.  In the event of dismissal during the school day all educational and building employees are to continue their work unless otherwise notified by the Superintendent.  Teachers are expected to supervise all students under their jurisdiction until they have departed from the school campus.  The Superintendent's office will notify news media and other such persons and organizations as necessary of the decision to dismiss early.
