  • School Closing, Early Dismissal, and Delayed Opening Procedures

    In the event of inclement weather or other emergencies, announcements of “No School Today” or a “Delayed Opening” you will be contacted through the Emergency Telephone Alerting System using the phone numbers you have provided. Please communicate with the office if your contact numbers have changed. In addition, all school closings or delayed openings will be posted on the school district web site at www.erboe.net

    PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL OR POLICE HEADQUARTERS. THE TELEPHONE LINES MUST REMAIN OPEN TO HANDLE OFFICIAL BUSINESS.

    Delayed Opening Procedures

    At times, the inclement weather we experience is not severe enough to close school for the entire day. However, safety dictates extra caution in the process of getting to school. In the event of a delayed opening, you will be notified through the Emergency Computer Telephone Alert System.
