NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

"Snow Days"

Dear Frontier and Union #38 Families,

        With the cold weather fast approaching and a hint of snow in the air, I am writing to let you know what our plan for “snow days” is this year. (In fact, they are forecasting snow for Friday!)

The approach to winter weather closures has changed due to our ability to have remote learning. Under new rules from the Department of Education, our district(s) will have remote learning days in place of weather delays and snow days.  Teachers will use a combination of their normal remote learning platform and a-synchronous learning activities/assignments on these days. 

In the case of extreme weather conditions that may include massive power outages, and a community shut down, we may cancel school. 

As a reminder, any canceled day of school will be made up at the end of the school year in June (remote days will not). For example, the “wind day” on October 8th that caused disruption of power and internet failure, and that ultimately resulted in a canceled school day that was added to the end of the school year—making our last day now June 10.  

As a kid, I loved the “magic” of a snow day. Given all mother nature has given us recently, I don’t think we will get through winter without the need to have a snow day or two!   

Stay Safe, Frontier & Union #38 families, and remember following COVID rules keeps our community safe and our schools open. 

Sincerely,

Darius Modestow, Superintendent
