GPSD7 Two-Hour Delayed Start for Friday, December 13, 2013
Due to the persistent freezing temperatures and the associated impact on driving conditions, Grants Pass School District #7 is on a two-hour delayed start on Friday, December 13, 2013. Although the District takes every precaution to ensure the safety of students and staff, parents ultimately decide whether conditions are safe enough for their student(s) to attend school even if school is open. Any student not attending school due to the current adverse weather/road conditions will be excused.
With a two hour delayed start, school will begin two
hours later than the regular schedule, with the exception of GPHS/Gladiola which have set 9:45 AM as their delayed start time. Dismissal times will remain the same. School start times for Friday, December 13, 2013 are shown at right:
School Start Times for Friday, Dec. 13th
Elementary Schools: 10:00 AM
Middle Schools: 10:40 AM
GPHS & Gladiola: 9:45 AM
Due to the impact of the delayed start, all AM (morning) session only programs/classes are cancelled. Parents with students in AM only sessions can call their school should they have any questions. Other students who attend school on a modified schedule (other than an AM only schedule) will be contacted individually to inform them of their schedule and transportation options.
School Bus Service
In general, buses will pick students up at their designated stops two hours later than usual and dropped off at their usual stop and time after school.
Due to particularly adverse road conditions in certain areas, school bus service will be modified for students in these severe road condition locations. These students will be provided an alternate bus pick-up/drop-off location. Please note that your student will be dropped off at the same alternate location after school.
