School Closing Information

Webster Groves School District

Closing Information




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:

Late Start

The Webster Groves School District will consider opening schools with a “late start” on inclement days when roads are expected to be cleared within a few hours.  This option would keep children off the street during the busy morning rush hour.  A late start would mean that all schools would open an hour and 15 minutes later than their usual start times. Quick breakfasts would be available a half hour before the late start opening.  Students should arrive no earlier than 30 minutes before the start of school.  Morning Adventure Club will be cancelled during late start days.

All schools and Adventure Club would close at their regular times.
