Closing Info 20 - 21
Should bad weather or other adverse conditions prompt us to consider closing schools, the District will make a decision as early as possible. Information will be available through the following outlets:
- Phone calls to all families through SchoolMessenger
- Local media: KMOV TV (Channel 4), KSDK TV (Channel 5), KTVI (Channel 2) and KMOX radio (AM 1120)
- District website www.webster.k12.mo.us

Late Start and Early Dismissal
The District will consider opening schools with a late start or calling for an early dismissal depending on weather conditions. (See chart with times below.) A late start would keep children off the street during the busy morning rush hour if roads are expected to be clear within a few hours; early dismissal would allow students to get home safely before bad weather moves into the area. Quick breakfasts would be available when school doors open before classes begin. Students should arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before the start of school. (This doesn’t include Ambrose Preschool children.)
All schools would close at their regular times and there would be no Adventure Club.
Due to staffing that works in both the in-person and virtual settings, any of the changes below would apply to students and staff in both the responsive and virtual programs. Below are late-start times for schools.
