Re:   EMERGENCY CLOSURE PROCEDURES

Safety for all children is one of the District’s top priorities.   Under some circumstances, schools cannot open due to loss of utilities (water, heat, and/or electricity), severe weather, or dangerous road conditions.  When this happens, the District will contact the Santa Cruz County Office of Education (SCCOE) and they will contact the local radio and television stations listed below.  The radio and television stations will broadcast spot announcements as often as 
possible.  The District will also activate the Emergency All-Call System, which will require a working telephone number.

If you have not received a phone call from the District’s All-Call System or heard a public announcement via the radio or television station by 8:00am, please assume that schools are open.  You may attempt to contact the schools to verify whether they are open or closed.

Please tune in to one of the following stations to listen for school closure information:
