In the event of a school closing, early dismissal, or delayed opening, the District will notify families using as many channels as possible, including: 
  • Automated calls
  • District website
  • District app push notification
  • E-mail 
  • Social media—Twitter and Facebook
  • Text notifications 
  • News media

Please be sure to update preferences on SchoolMessenger to ensure you receive appropriate updates from the District. If your contact information has changed, please call your school building or 216-295-4321 to update your emergency alert contact information. As no system is foolproof, we encourage you to monitor more than one of these communication channels. Remember: If it didn't come from the District, it's not official.

Families and staff will be notified of a closing or delayed opening the night before if possible, and by 5:30 a.m. at the latest. Power or internet outages could affect one or more of these systems, so it is best to monitor more than one.

A delayed opening may be used on days when weather or road conditions make it inadvisable to start school at the usual time, but it is possible to open if conditions improve. Delayed opening means a two-hour delay in school starting times and morning bus runs. 

Please familiarize yourself with the Delayed Opening Procedures and develop a family plan so that children will be safe at home and en route to school on delayed-opening days. Your family's plan will vary depending on your family circumstances and the maturity of your children. View our Delayed Opening Procedures to learn more about bus pickup times, breakfast food service changes, before-school care and more.
