Inclement Weather

In the case of a severe weather event, Dr. Van Deusen will consult with the Director of Transportation and the Director of Buildings and Grounds.  The Director of Transportation will contact our district transportation contractors and municipalities to gain a comprehensive picture of the roadways that cover the district.  The South Eastern School District covers roughly 108 square miles and varies greatly in road and weather conditions, so a complete picture of the district is necessary. 

Dr. Van Deusen will work to make an inclement weather call by 5:15 a.m. to allow families, transportation, and staff time to prepare for the morning.  While this timeframe may not always occur due to the timing or complexity of the issue, it will be our goal.

If we must cancel school due to inclement weather, the South Eastern School District will utilize an asynchronous teaching day.

Student Expectations for Asynchronous Learning 

During an asynchronous weather day, students should plan for the following:

SESD Brick and Mortar and SESD Virtual
