Cold Weather and Snow Day Policies

Cold Weather and Snow Day Policies 

Helpful Reminders:

  • If it is 21 degrees or colder, we will have an inside day.
  • If there is heavy rain or snow, we will have an inside day.
  • If an inside day is called, there will be orange flags hung outside every exterior door of the main building.
  • Don’t forget to dress for the weather. It is better to be prepared, than to be cold.
  • When it has snowed and we are outside, Heartland Elementary does NOT allow students to throw snowballs, kick snow in the air, or slide on the ice as these can all cause injuries.
  • Should a snow day be called by the district office, it will be announced by local media as soon as possible.

Poor air quality

  • If there is an air quality concern, students with asthma will be allowed to stay inside. If the air quality is a major concern, it will be an inside day for all students.
