SNOW DAYS AND WEATHER CLOSURES
The decision to call off or delay school is not made until careful analysis of current road and weather conditions. SPJUSD will this web page as an additional avenue for parents and students to obtain “snow day” or “closures” information. SPJUSD also use our FaceBook page to get information and updates out. Our FaceBook page is located at the following link https://www.facebook.com/spjusd. A phone call, “All Call”, will go out, generally by 6:00-7:00 A.M. to each student’s home. If you are not on the “All Call” list, please call 530-993-4454 or the District Office at 530-993-1660.
You will be notified at the normal call time if we implement a delayed start, and the period of delay (two hours) will be announced. All school and bus schedules will match this delayed start time. For example, if we call a two-hour delayed start and your child’s school normally starts at 7:30 A.M., then they will start at 9:30 A.M. If you child normally catches the bus at 7:15 A.M., then on a delayed start day, they would catch their bus at 9:15 A.M.
If it is a snow day, or closure, every attempt to update the information will be made. However, technical difficulties with Internet access, or at the website, as well as electrical outages or phone line problems, could result in this site, or the methods above, not being able to provide accurate, updated information.
Be aware that the Loyalton Schools may be affected or closed while Downieville is in session, or vice versa.
