Snow won’t stop Adams 14 kids from learning
When bad weather hits, it doesn’t stop the need for students to learn.
That’s why the district is going to rehearse having a “delayed start” to the school day on Friday, Jan. 13. This option basically starts the school schedule two hours later than normal. Buses run two hours later and classes start two hours later. This allows students and families to avoid the more hectic travel times on streets and sidewalks. It also gives Mother Nature a chance to improve the weather when kids will actually be outside.
At the end of the day, schools are released at their normal time using their normal schedule. The rehearsal of the delayed schedule will ensure parents, students and staff are well-prepared to use the schedule when it really counts.
Adams 14 is highly focused on maximizing every minute to improve student learning. We know that kids can’t learn if they aren’t in school. Rather than completely calling off school when bad weather strikes, we have an alternative schedule that can help keep kids with their teachers and learning while avoiding the impacts of bad weather.
