Inclement Weather Policy

In case of inclement weather (snow, ice, etc.):

a.   The school will make announcements by 6:00 a.m. on inclement weather days. As a general rule GIS will follow the Beaverton Public School decision on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

b.   Wednesday’s please watch for a decision to come directly from the school. 

c.   Check the GIS website, your radio or television for additional information.  If there is a schedule change for the school, we automatically report this by 6:00 AM to all major news & radio stations. The school may also send an email to all community members, but the school website and media outlets should be your first resource.

d.   If the onset of inclement weather occurs during normal school hours, you will be contacted If GIS is closed, all associated programs will also be closed including Extended Care, AGs, concerts, etc. If you expect to need childcare on inclement weather days, you are responsible for arranging this with a private sitter.

e.   Open doors - On late start days, there will be no before care provided and school will start immediately at the stated time.  Since everyone (staff and parents) will be arriving late, parents must stay with their children until school starts.
