Emergency School Closing



EMERGENCY SCHOOL CLOSING INFORMATION   Schoology messages will be sent out when closings or delays are called.    

Calling school off is never an easy decision. Please be patient and understand that these decisions are difficult to make, taken very seriously and involve many levels of people to help determine if conditions are safe for school to be open. The Superintendent of Schools works with the Griffith Police Department and the Director of Public Works for the Town of Griffith, to make this determination.

It is important to know the process for calling off school. Griffith Public Schools and Town of Griffith personnel begin as early as 2:00 a.m. when bad weather is expected.

Roads are continually assessed for safety. 

We try to make informed decisions as quickly as possible, but as you know, weather is unpredictable. Be aware that 6:00 a.m. is decision-making time unless the conditions drastically change. We appreciate your understanding the magnitude of the decision-making process and hope that you understand that it is taken very seriously.

All bus routes run two hours later than the normal time. 

Parents and students are responsible for knowing about emergency closings and delays
