MSBSD process regarding School Closures and Late Buses

  • Bus delay information will be sent when a bus is running more than 15 minutes late directly to families.

    • District Personnel will do their best to determine by 5:00 A.M. the status of all school closures and or delays.  This decision to close or not close schools is informed by weather and road conditions throughout the Mat-Su.
    • Parents can use their discretion to keep their child home if they feel that is the best course of action for their family.  Parents can notify the school of the absence and make a plan to make up any missed work.
    • Knowing that the Mat-Su does experience frozen rain, hail, snow and strong winds, and cold temperatures, the District encourages all students to dress appropriately for the weather.

    The following methods will be used to inform the public of school closures or bus delays:
