    Weather events & Internet/service outages – What to expect


    Thoreau in Snow

    We know that our Pacific Northwest weather can be unpredictable. Please take a few minutes to review the information below so you know what to expect when there is a weather event or power outage during a school day. 

    Power and Internet Outages
    If a student/teacher experiences a power or internet outage:

    • Contact your teacher or school to report the outage.
    • If you lose power or connection during a Microsoft Teams class session and you are unable to connect, you should attempt to connect as soon as a connection is available.   
    • If your teacher is suddenly absent without notification from a Microsoft Teams class, you should leave the session and re-enter after 15 minutes.  If the teacher is still absent from Microsoft Teams you may end class.   
    • The teacher will follow up with individual students or the class as soon as possible.  
    • You should take note of asynchronous activities you could do without an internet connection. 
    • You can also continue to work on previously assigned classwork. 

    Weather events (snow days) 
    Snow days during remote learning will work differently than a normal school year. If snow or inclement weather affects a school day, remote instruction will continue and in-person students receiving special services will shift to all remote learning for that day. There will not be late starts due to snow or weather events.  

    Announcements will be made to staff and families via our SchoolMessenger system (by phone, email, and by text messaging for those signed up), district website posting, and social media postings. We will also use FlashAlert.net, which reports directly to local media and provides text alerts to anyone who signs up.
