IN THE EVENT OF A CRISIS:

1.  Visit www.tcsd.org for emergency announcements.
2.  Only those persons identified on the "emergency card" may pick up a student (i.e. parents or adults whose names that have been listed as contacts in case of an emergency).
3.  Pick up students at school Student Release Area.
4.  Students at all grade levels are to remain at school until you or a designee arrives.
5.  Students are to remain in the bus if a crisis occurs during transportation time (i.e. a safe delivery site will be determined and parents notified).
6.  Plan ahead - discuss a family plan with your children.

It is advisable that all parents contact their school office to establish emergency contact information regarding your child prior to an emergency.


SCHOOL CLOSURE INFORMATION:

LISTED ARE THE PROTOCOLS FOR TCSD #1 IN CASE THERE IS A CLOSING OR DELAYED OPENING

 

SCHOOL CLOSINGS

Due to severe weather and/or hazardous road conditions, schools may delay opening, release early or close for the entire day.  The decision is made district-wide and applies to all schools.  Outlying schools may be an exception due to their location and separate operations.

 

TEMPERATURE COLDER THAN -25 DEGREES
This policy states that if the temperature is colder than -25oF at the transportation garage, then the Superintendent and the Transportation Director will confer on whether it is safe to open the schools.  The final decision will be made by the Superintendent prior to 5:45am the morning of the school day in question.

 

LATE ARRIVAL/2-HOUR DELAYED OPENING

Due to a large amount of snow fall, black ice, or other severe conditions, schools may delay opening by two (2) hours.  All busses will run on their regular schedule/stops 2 hours later than normal time.  All personnel will report 20 minutes before the delayed school day is scheduled to start.  All administration will report at their regularly schedule time.
