Winter Weather: How to know when schools are closed

Winter Weather: How to know when schools are closed
4J Winter Weather Updates

*see Sheldon’s Two Hour Delay/Hazardous Weather schedule at the bottom of this page!

When winter weather arrives, schools may be closed or delayed or buses may use snow routes. School districts decide early in the morning whether there is a need to change the school schedule or bus routes. These decisions are made districtwide and are the same for every 4J school.

There are several ways to find out if there is a change on snowy or icy days:

• Text-message alerts via Twitter — to sign up, just text FOLLOW 4JWEATHER to 40404
• 4J website, www.4j.lane.edu
• KRVM 91.9 FM
• Other radio and television news stations

If there is a school closure or other change, the school district will announce it before 6:30 a.m. If schools and buses are on their regular schedule, there will NOT be an announcement.

Parents of students who ride school buses that have alternate snow routes have been informed of what to do. Snow route information can be found on the district website at www.4j.lane.edu/transportation/snowroutes.

If school is in session, families are encouraged to consider road conditions in their areas and make their own decisions based on safety. Parents’ individual decisions about school attendance will be honored.

Días de mal clima en el invierno: Cómo saber si las escuelas estarán cerradas
Inscríbase para obtener textos de alerta

Cuando hay mal tiempo en el invierno, las escuelas pueden cerrar o comenzar tarde y los autobúses pueden cambiar a las rutas de nieve. Los distritos escolares deciden temprano en la mañana si es necesario cambiar el horario escolar o las rutas de los autobuses. Estas decisiones son tomadas por el distrito entero y son las mismas para todas las escuelas de 4J.

Los padres de familia tienen varias formas de informarse si hay un cambio en las escuelas en los días cuando hay nieve o hielo:

• Antes del mal tiempo, puede suscribirse a las mensajes de texto para avisos (en ingles) — enviar a 40404 un texto que dice FOLLOW 4JWEATHER
• Puede marcar el número de teléfono de emergencia en español, 541-790-7738
• Puede visitar el sitio web del distrito www.4j.lane.edu (en inglés)
• También, puede escuchar a la estación de radio KRVM-FM 91.9 (en inglés), o otras estaciones de radio y de televisión que también estarán anunciando si las escuelas están cerradas.

El distrito escolar anunciará al público antes de las 6:30 a.m. si las escuelas estarán cerradas debido al clima o si los autobuses han sido activados para las rutas de nieve. El distrito no hará ningún anuncio al público si los horarios y rutas no son cambiados.

Los padres de los estudiantes que viajan en los buses que utilizan rutas de nieve han sido informados de lo que deben hacer. Información sobre las rutas de nieve se puede encontrar en el sitio web www.4j.lane.edu/transportation/snowroutes.

Si las clases están en sesión, tome en cuenta la condición de las carreteras en su área para tomar una decisión dando prioridad a su seguridad. Respetaremos la decisión que tomen los padres de familia en cuanto a la asistencia a clases.

Inspire…

“1000 places to see before you die” was originated by our former Sheldon Academy Coordinator, Kerry Couture, and has grown, with the help of Barbara Harris and students, into a very cool geography/adventure/informational wall.  The hope is that in the quest towards graduation, our Sheldon students will be inspired to go beyond what they thought possible.  Sheldon staff believe in you!

Staff and students are invited to come over and explore a building that many don’t know exists:  The H-building.  Who knows? Some of you may be inspired to travel to an unknown country, sample an exotic dish, or open yourself up to new possibilities!
