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. If the work or school day normally starts at 7am, then a delayed start moves the reporting time to 9am (two hours later). On delayed start days, buses also run two hours later. If the bus normally picks up students at 6:30 am, then on delayed start days the bus would pick up students at 8:30 am. A light breakfast is served on late start days.
