Weather Closures

Weather-Related School Closures

Emergency WeatherAdverse weather conditions or other emergencies that affect the safety of our students in Lincoln County may require schools to be closed for the day. Here is what you can expect:

  1. By 6:00 a.m., local radio stations and major Portland TV news stations are notified and begin making announcements.
  2. A message is recorded on the LCSD 24-hour Information Line: 541-265-4437.
  3. By 6:30 a.m., we will update the LCSD website with the current school closure/delay information. The District Facebook Page and FlashAlert are other places to check for updates.
  4. A text message may be sent to all parents and staff by 6:00 a.m. to the primary phone number on file.

NOTE:

  • If announcements are not on local radio, the 24-hour Information Line or the LCSD website, the Mid Columbia Bus Company will run their regular routes, and schools will operate on their regular schedules.
  • Power outages and/or downed power lines may make internet access and phone messaging systems unavailable.
  • Isolated inclement weather situations mean some areas might seem unaffected, but the entire school district usually closes if buses are unsafe in any area.
