When it becomes necessary to close our schools due to inclement weather or other emergencies, information will be posted on the internet and broacasted as described below beginning at 6:00 a.m. (all schools will be listed as North Santiam School District).

Two-Hour Delayed Start: This is a two-hour delay based on the scheduled start time for both staff and students.
