Inclement Weather Plans

These flow charts outline our district decision making and communication process for the following scenarios:

  • 2-Hour Delay
  • School Closings
  • Early Release (with & without busing)
  • After School Activities Cancellations

School Closures

On days of threatening weather, Ellicott School District officials will make a decision on delayed start or school cancellation by 6:00 am. The media outlets (KOAA, KKTV, KRDO, and FOX21) and the Elllicott School District 22 Facebook page will broadcast the delay or closure.

Early School Dismissal

Parents / guardians are asked to inform their children and their school of special arrangements in the case of early school dismissal. Phones will typically be unavailable for all students, so families are urged to plan ahead and be prepared for this possibility.
