Inclement Weather Procedure

Fox C-6 Inclement Weather Procedure

In the event of inclement weather or other situation that requires school to be canceled for the day or school to be dismissed early, an announcement will be made as soon as the decision is made by District Administration. Below are some important details to be aware of:

1.  Our students' safety is always the top priority when making the decision.

2.  Every attempt will be made to call school at the earliest possible time.

3.  Check the district web site for any cancellations or early dismissals. You can also check the District Twitter account @FoxC6Schools or Facebook for up-to-date information.

An alert will be posted prominently on the District Home page. Make sure to "refresh" your browser periodically in case new information has been released. Information will also be sent over email and text message through the district's school notification system. To opt-in for text messages, make sure to text YES to 67587.

4.  School closings and dismissals will also be available on local television stations - both on air and on their respective web sites.

5.  We will always give at least one hour notification before school is dismissed early. 

6.  Please make sure that you have a plan in place in the event school is dismissed early.  This should be on file in the school office.

7.  In the case of an early dismissal, Fox C-6 must operate its 3 tiers, which can take additional time when inclement weather is inbound. Fox C-6 Schools are in the following tiers. Note that student drivers are released before the Tier 1 buses leave campus. Please be cognizant that the travel time home will vary due to road conditions.

Tier 1 Schools

  • Fox High
  • Fox Middle
  • Seckman High
  • Seckman Middle

Tier 2 Schools

  • Antonia Middle
  • Ridgewood Middle
  • Rockport Heights Elementary
  • Simpson Elementary

Tier 3 Schools

  • Antonia Elementary
  • Fox Elementary
  • Hamrick Elementary
  • Guffey Elementary

8.  In the event of inclement weather, please have your child consider riding the bus. They can leave their cars at school if they feel more comfortable.

9. In the event of inclement weather, Character Kids Club will not be offering a snow day program. If school is canceled due to bad weather our CKC program will be closed. In the best interest of our staff members, the children, and family members, this decision is to keep all safe. In addition, should the district choose to dismiss early due to inclement weather, our CKC program will not operate the afternoon session. We ask that you have an optional plan in place to ensure you are not caught off guard.
