Provo City School District fully expects our schools to be open and functioning normally throughout the winter, but weather conditions, which can vary greatly in different neighborhoods and on different streets in a short amount of time, may result in a change in the normal operating routine. The safety of our students is our primary concern.

The following are our established procedures for determining the impact of weather on travel and start times. This is for you to be aware of. For accurate information when you wake up in the morning, we will post such info on the district website, Facebook, and Twitter and share with local media. If you see nothing posted, please assume that all is as per normal.

8:45 p.m. the night before a known incoming storm – District Officials will determine if designated drivers will be sent out the following morning to assess road conditions. This decision will be made by 8:45 PM so we can notify those that are willing to assess before they go to bed.

4:45-5:00 a.m. – Assigned drivers will begin driving roads to assess conditions and report back to District Officials.

5:00-5:15 a.m. – District Transportation Department contacts Provo City to receive their assessment of road conditions.

5:10 a.m. – District facilities employees contact Superintendent via text or phone with any assessment from their crews on the road conditions and, in particular, the ability for district facility employees to maintain clear walks and parking lots at schools.

5:20 a.m. – District officials discuss the reported assessments and make a determination if any possible closures or transportation route adjustments needed/recommended.
