Emergency Communications Procedures

     Schools in Daggett School District will remain open, if at all possible, on all scheduled school days. Even when weather conditions are severe, every effort will be made to keep schools open in the belief that it is in the best interest of the students.  The District is concerned about the safety of all students, staff, and patrons.  We encourage everyone to use caution traveling safely to and from our schools and buildings. 

     The District recognizes the rights of parents to make decisions that are best for their children.  Therefore, the option to keep children home when weather conditions are severe is always at the parents’ discretion and the school respects the decision.  Students who are kept home by a parent or guardian will not be penalized for their absence or tardiness.  Make-up schoolwork may be necessary, but schools will accommodate students on the timely completion of required assignments or tests. 

     On occasion, weather may be so extreme the District will close schools or implement a late start or early dismissal.  The following information outlines the communication procedures that will be followed if such school closures or delays become necessary.

Keep Phones Accessible

District-Wide Text Alert System
Texts will be sent out immediately following decisions made regarding closing school or starting late. 

Closures Posted on the Web
School closure information will be posted by 6 a.m. on Daggett School District’s website. 

Authorized Statements
The media will only announce school closures when authorized by the Superintendent of Schools or his/her designee. 

Closures for One Day Only
All announcements are for one day only. 

Normal Operation
No announcement means normal operation. 

Parents Need An Emergency Plan
Parents are encouraged to establish an emergency plan for their children in the event that schools are closed, start late or are dismissed early. Parents should instruct their children where to go or what to do if a parent is not at home. 

Bus Stops
On severe weather days, understand that buses may be running late due to road conditions and/or traffic delays. Please watch for an email, phone or text messages regarding delayed bus routes.  Parents are asked to wait with and/or meet their students at bus stops when buses are running on delayed or emergency schedules. 

Make-up Days
The Utah State Board of Education requires a minimum number of instructional days of school.  Days lost because of inclement weather will be made up.   

Late Start
When the District has designated a school day as “Schools Will Start Late,” the expectation is that employees will arrive at their schools/departments at their regular contract time, or as soon as they can safely arrive. 

Please contact the principal at your local school for additional information.
