Winter weather school delays and closures

School closings

Winter is coming. Stay up-to-date with the latest information on school delays or closures due to inclement weather conditions. If the decision is made to delay or close school, we will publish that information to our district social media sites first. You can follow the district on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter for the latest updates.

Messages will also be sent directly from our Skylert system. We develop school closing messages in three ways: email, text message, and automated phone calls using the parent and guardian contacts we have on file in our Skyward student information system. If you have not recently reviewed your Skylert contact preferences, we ask that you do so by following the directions at the end of this communication.

Delay and closure announcements will also be posted on our district and school websites and shared on local TV and radio.

Should school be closed due to inclement weather this school year, the district calendar designates that the first two days will not be made up, which is a change from past practice. Beginning with the third canceled day, minutes will be added to the daily schedule to extend the day at each level. As a result, there will be no day extension to the school year.

Making a decision about weather-related school closures is always difficult, but please know the safety of our students and staff is always our number one priority.

Thank you for choosing the School District of La Crosse and have a wonderful and safe winter.
