School closing decisions due to severe weather are made as early as
possible on the following broadcast systems:
KSPI (FM 93.7) (AM 780)
- KGFY (FM 105.5)
- KVRO (FM 101.1)
Channels 4, 5, & 9 (OKC)
- Channels 6 & 8 (Tulsa)
- Suddenlink Channel 16
School Messenger will also be used to communicate to parents
regarding school closing decisions.
Heavy rains, tornadoes, and snow and ice conditions are a
common occurrence in Oklahoma. Each of our schools has a tornado
procedure, and the faculty and students practice storm drills
periodically. If severe weather (tornado) is approaching at the time of
dismissal, students will be held at the school until the danger has
subsided. If there is a tornado watch but no immediate danger, school
will be dismissed on schedule.
The decision to close school or alter bus routes due to snow and/or ice is usually made by
10:00pm the night before (if known) or by 6:00am the next day.
