|The decision to cancel classes on days of inclement weather such as “Snow Days” is a very difficult and serious undertaking. The concern for student and staff safety always serves as the main driver when these decisions are made.
Our schools provide a safe and stable place to learn and many of our students rely on the District for breakfast and lunch. Canceling schools is an exception and we do everything possible to keep schools open. If there is no safety concern in getting to school, we want to make sure that our students are at school.
In the event that school is canceled due to weather, the District makes every attempt to notify families as soon as possible when decisions are made that might impact your child’s school day.
Parents can help by making sure their contact information, as well as emergency contact information is updated with their child’s school, and by downloading the Columbus City Schools Mobile App to receive news about “snow days’ and other cancellations.
