    As we approach the winter season, it's time once again to think about the possibility of occasional school closings due to severe weather.  We are sharing our district's winter weather procedures below so that your family can be informed and prepared in the case of a school closing.

     

    Closing school for winter weather

    The decision to close schools is complex and the safety of our students and staff, especially those waiting at bus stops, is always the most important factor we consider when making the decision. We do not make the decision based on a specific temperature or snowfall benchmark, but rather assess a multitude of factors including temperature, wind chill, amount of snow, road conditions and geography. The National Weather Service is our source for weather information used to make this decision.

     

    Due to the often unpredictable winter weather in Minnesota, in most cases we wait until the morning of each school day before notifying families. However, there may be rare instances when we make a decision the night before. Families are encouraged to watch the weather forecasts and have contingency plans in place whenever there is the possibility of severe weather and school cancelation.

     

    How We Communicate

    As soon as the decision is made to close school, district staff use a variety of communication tools to let people know. We reach out to all families directly with an email and phone message through our mass notification system. The contact information in this system comes from your student’s enrollment record, so if your family’s phone number or email has changed, be sure to notify your school office.

     

    In addition to our direct messages, we also activate a pop-up alert message on our district website at www.flaschools.org and all of our individual school websites. This message will appear immediately after the decision has been made and will remain in place for most of the day. The weather hotline phone number, 651-982-8143, will also be updated whenever there is a school cancellation.

     

    We also send school closure notifications to all Twin Cities metro area television stations, as well as WCCO radio, and we post notifications on our district Facebook page.

     

    E-Learning Days

    As you may have heard, we have implemented e-Learning days that will allow our students to continue learning on days when school is cancelled for weather-related reasons. These e-Learning days will only be implemented if more than two school days must be cancelled this year -- in other words, the first two “snow days” of the school year will not be e-Learning days.

     

    If forecasts suggest that an e-Learning day might be possible, you can expect more communication on this topic from your child’s school and/or teachers with specific information about what students should do.

    New District-Wide Bullying Prevention Form Available

    In a continuing effort to prevent bullying and quickly deal with any bullying that occurs, Forest Lake Area Schools has launched a new district-wide procedure for identifying and reporting bullying behavior. If you believe that your child or a student you know is being bullied, please fill out this Bullying Reporting Form. The form can be filled out online but must be printed and signed before it is turned in at any school office in the district. Paper copies of the form are also available at each school building and the Community Education office. For more information about bullying prevention in Forest Lake Area Schools, visit the bullying resource page here.
