Independence High School

From the Provo School District Website:

In the next two days, we may be facing the first time this school year where there is a legitimate chance that morning weather may impact teachers and students in getting to school on time.

Please remember that different areas of Provo may receive very different impacts of the weather. The decisions made are as an entire district, with the exception of some transportation changes, if the weather so dictates.

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 info on our website, Facebook, and Twitter and share with local media. If you see nothing posted, please assume that all is as per normal.

Thanks for your vigilance.

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.

5:30 a.m. – The final decision is relayed to the District Transportation and Communications offices.   The Communication Department begins to make any necessary communication to stakeholders by 5:45 a.m. per Policy 6607P1.
