EMERGENCY SCHOOL CLOSING INFORMATION

 

Families of South Putnam Community Schools:

 

In cases of emergency or as the winter season approaches, you may be affected by school closings,

school delays or early dismissals.  If you are registered on our Honeywell Instant Alert system you

will be receiving a phone call, text message, and or e-mail alert depending how you have your account

set up.  Please go to the corporation website at www.sputnam.k12.in.us for further information on

Instant Alert or contact the Corporation Administration Office at 765-653-3119.  In addition when

weather conditions are threatening, have your radio or TV on the channels listed below.  Families

should be making arrangements now for childcare and transportation needs.  If at all possible, the

decision regarding school closings or delays will be made by 6:30 A.M. and announced to the media

listed below:

When weather conditions are already severe the evening before, announcements of school delays or

closings could be made in the evening prior to the following morning.  Please listen to the stations

above for any possible announcements of school closings or delays.

 

One of the following plans is possible, during inclement weather:

  1. CLOSE school entirely: all media notified by 6:30 A.M.
  2. DELAY the start of school for two hours:
    1. Buses will run two hours late.
    2. Breakfast will NOT be served.
    3. NO A.M. Vocational School when on a two hour delay

3.      DELAY the start of school for one hour:

a.       Buses will run one hour late.

b.      Breakfast will NOT be served.

4.      DELAY the start of school, but HOLDING, for possible close of the school for the entire day.

This might be when the weather conditions causing a delay worsen.  A decision to close would

be given to the above media during the delay period.

5.      EARLY RELEASE: weather conditions have changed to the point that, without an early

dismissal, vehicle travel will be unsafe.  Unless conditions dictate otherwise, the students will

be released two hours prior to the regular end of the school day.  The media will be notified on

the times of early release.

 

When conditions warrant, the superintendent will be on the roads between 4:00 A.M. and 6:30 A.M.,

SO HE IS NOT AVAILABLE AT HOME OR WORK.  PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE HOME OR

SCHOOL BECAUSE THERE IS NO ONE THERE WHO CAN ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS.

LISTEN TO THE MEDIA LISTED ABOVE.

 

These plans may be altered should the situation warrant a change.
