Winter Weather Procedure

School will not be dismissed because of weather conditions that arise during the school day, if it is feasible for students and staff to remain safely at school. If a situation should arise and an early dismissal is needed, the Skylert phone notification system will be activated.

Please know that the District is always focused on the safety of our students and staff, and will make a judgment call based on the severity of the situation. 

If adverse weather conditions exist before school begins, and we decide to cancel school, Mr. Howard will first tweet the news, so if you have a Twitter account, follow him @dlhoward32. Notifications will be placed on our District home page and on the Basehor-Linwood USD 458 official Facebook page (@BasehorLinwoodUSD458). You can also check the following TV stations for the school closing announcement:

KMBC (Channel 9)

KCTV (Channel 5)

WDAF (Channel 4)

KSHB (Channel 41)

KSNT (NBC), KTKA (ABC), KTMJ (FOX) and MTKA (CW) (Topeka)

Remember that you are responsible for keeping your first and second notification phone numbers up-to-date in Skyward, so now would be a great time to double check your information! Please contact your building secretary if you need assistance making any changes.
