Predicting weather and road conditions is a challenge, particularly in a district that spans two counties and experiences different conditions from one end of the school district to the other. Regardless of the challenges, the safety of each of our students is the Kuna School District's priority. The District follows these guidelines for deciding to close school due to inclement weather;
The Kuna School District strives to hold school whenever possible and only call an emergency closure when the situation warrants such action. District policy and procedures conform to Idaho Code 33-512 regarding governance of schools when adverse weather, facility failures or other conditions interfere with normal operations of the District.
The Kuna School District will use the following methods to notify parents about an inclement weather closure by 6:00 a.m.:
In the past, our schools sent home loads of flyers in students' backpacks. As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly and to embrace innovative technology, we are moving from paper to a digital flyer delivery or eflyer.
With our Peachjar eflyer program, the eflyers will be sent directly to parents' email inboxes as well as posted on school websites for easy access. All flyers may be accessed by clicking on the Peachjar logo.
Each year, our schools will save tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. In addition, paperless delivery of school flyers removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers.
School and school district-approved eflyers will keep you informed about upcoming school activities, programs, and events.
...And our children's backpacks will be a little bit lighter!
