What To Do During Weather Days

RE: What to Do During Weather Days -  2020-2021

Dear New London-Spicer Staff and Families, 

In the case that inclement weather would render transportation to the buildings too dangerous our district will utilize our K-12 Distance Learning Schedules rather than a No School Weather Day. Students in our Prairie Meadows PreK program will not participate in Distance Learning on Weather Days so they will be closed for the day. 

If the weather appears that conditions may improve within a two hour period and a late start is announced students in grades K-12 should plan to load their bus and begin their school day two hours later than normal. Students in our Prairie Meadows PreK program should also plan to begin their school day two hours later than normal during a late start due to inclement weather. 

Prairie Meadows (PreK)
Our preschool program will be closed with no distance learning when a weather day has been determined. If a two hour late start due to weather falls on a previously scheduled early dismissal day our preschool program will close for the day. 

Prairie Woods (K-4)
On any snow day, the elementary will follow their Wednesday Check and Connect Distance Learning schedule. Students are expected to check-in for daily attendance. Each classroom will have a synchronous opportunity throughout the day.  Teachers will post their materials to Seesaw and/or supply a blizzard packet for your child to complete.  Students are expected to complete their assigned work. Students may submit their work in-person or through Seesaw.

Middle School (5-8)
The Middle School will follow their regular Distance Learning Schedule for a synchronous learning schedule. Students will be required to Zoom and check Schoology.

High School (9-12)
The High School will follow their regular Distance Learning Schedule for a synchronous learning schedule. Students will be required to Zoom and check Schoology.

Special Education Students
Students receiving in-person special education services will not report to school on a weather day. Case managers will be in contact with families regarding a plan for these students.
