Early Dismissals

In the rare event that weather conditions deteriorate during the course of the day and an early dismissal is warranted, parents will receive a phone notification through our One Call Now system.  The call will be to the primary number and other numbers designated on the most recent student verification forms.  Television and radio announcements will also be made.  When possible the following schedule will be utilized for early dismissals:

Butler High School 11:15 a.m.

In the event of an early dismissal there will be NO P.M. KINDERGARTEN, P.M. PRESCHOOL, OR B.A.S.E.

In the event of severe weather, it is possible to have early dismissals beyond the half-day point.  In such instances kindergarten students will be dismissed at the same time as the elementary schools and will ride home with elementary school students.
