In anticipation of winter weather, the Preston School District is working to prepare schools and patrons for what could possibly be a “snow day.” The Preston School District will either have a full-day school closure or run a two-hour late start schedule. To keep from having to make up days during spring break or extending days into summer vacation, the district will try to avoid closing schools for a complete snow day if at all possible.
If a large storm does hit our district in the late evening or early morning, bus pick ups and school starting times may be set back exactly two hours later than the original times. This delayed start will give adequate time for snowplows to clear roads and ensure traveling is safe for all drivers in and around Preston.
For example: A school regularly starting at 8 a.m. will start at 10 a.m. on a late start day. A regular bus pick up at 7:15 a.m. will be at 9:15 a.m. on a late start day.
All schools, however, will keep dismissal times as originally scheduled. Students will be released from school at the normally scheduled times they are accustomed to.
If you are unsure of whether or not a storm has warranted full day closure, a late start delay, or no change to schedule, please check the Preston School District website, http://www.prestonidahoschools.org or tune into KACH Radio or KNVU Radio for updated information regarding the status of the school day. If a notice has not been posted by 6 a.m., schools and bus routes will likely operate on the standard schedule.
