Snow Day procedures
LOCS snow days will follow the traditional path as with previous years, canceling the school day for all students, in-person/remote, and in Dragon Virtual. Snow days will not alter the days that hybrid students are scheduled to attend in-person.
Families will be contacted in the traditional manner, via School Messenger email, texts and phone calls. If a family would like to adjust this delivery method, please log in to School Messenger and adjust your settings. The information will also be shared with the local media via the traditional broadcast outlets and posted on the LOCS website and social media channels.
In the event there is a decision to cancel more than 36 hours in advance, students may have remote learning in place of attending in person. In this circumstance, the district would inform families at least 36 hours in advance of the altered school day.
LOCS will make a great effort to call snow days as early as possible when a significant weather event is approaching. The district understands the challenges a late snow day call creates for families and will make every effort to avoid that, if possible.
But there are circumstances when a decision must be made in the morning of a school day and, with safety as the top priority, those situations may arise. The goal every day is to have students in school, safely traveling to and from the buildings.
