  • If there is one thing we can count on in Wisconsin, it is winter, and this year will be no exception. 

    We realize that any change from the school schedule causes family disruption, and the option to close or early dismiss school related to weather conditions is only made when absolutely necessary. As we get closer to winter weather that may cause us to close school and/or the District due to hazardous weather conditions, I wanted to remind you of our school closure procedures so that your family may prepare.

    How are weather-related school closure decisions made?
    The transportation manager and superintendent jointly monitor the weather through the previous day/evening/early morning hours.  By 5:30 a.m., they will determine road conditions and weather impact/outlook.  Based on the safety and timing of bus travel and the status of the weather, the superintendent will make the decision to close or not to close schools/district for the day. 

    Option #1 - Traditional Snow Day: All Stevens Point Area Public Schools are closed. No after-school activities will occur on days when schools are closed due to inclement weather. This option will be used based on the weather event and the District’s ability to meet  Department of Public Instruction minute requirements.

    Option #2 - School Closure E-Learning Day: All Stevens Point Area Public Schools are closed for in-person learning and students will have an E-Learning day. No after-school activities will occur on days when schools are closed for in-person learning due to inclement weather. 

    Option #4 -After-School Activities and Events Canceled: If school is held, but inclement weather approaches, the decision to cancel after-school events will be made by 2:00 p.m. The decision to cancel after school events/contests scheduled at other non-district sites, locations, other schools, etc., will be made on a case-by-case basis together with the hosting school/entity.

    How will I be notified if school is closed? 
    Once a decision to close, early dismiss, or cancel after-school activities and events has been made, parents, staff and the community will be notified through the following communication channels;

    1. District website - www.PointSchools.net
    2. Phone, text, and email notification (contact your school to update your contact information)
    3. District and School Social Media Channels 
    4. Local media outlets. 

    Please feel free to contact me via email, chirsbru@pointschools.net, or phone, 715-345-5444 with any questions you may have.
