4010 - Emergency Schedules and/or School Closures



It is the policy of Edmonds School District that emergency school schedules or school closure(s) will be invoked when circumstances are deemed by the superintendent or his/her designee to require such emergency scheduling or the closing of one or more of the district's schools or facilities.

An emergency situation will be considered to exist whenever conditions are such that continuing normal schedules or operations could endanger the safety and health of students, staff or the public or where continued operation would severely damage district property or equipment.

Announcement of emergency schedules or closure(s) will be made in cooperation with area radio and TV stations. When schools are closed all school activities during the closure may be cancelled or postponed. Decisions concerning the cancellation or postponement of interschool athletic activities will be coordinated through the athletic office. Decisions concerning the cancellation or postponement of in-building activities will be the responsibility of the principal in consultation with their supervisor.
