November 13, 2019 Dear Cardinal Families, As we approach the winter months, we have begun planning for inclement weather. Almost every year, Stewartsville experiences a few days of very cold, icy, or snowy weather that necessitate closing or delaying school. Hopefully, we have a mild winter, but if not, we want you to be prepared ahead of time. How do we decide to close school? The decision to delay or close school is a careful decision informed by several factors, including temperature and wind chill, levels of snow and ice, road conditions, and how these conditions are forecast to develop over the day. A decision will be made the night before; however, this might not always be possible in such cases, the decision will be made between 5:00–6:00 a.m. the morning of the delay or closure. If school is canceled, all afterschool activates will also be canceled. How is the public notified of school closings? The best source of information is the Stewartsville C2 social media accounts: Twitter (@stewartsvilleC2), Facebook (@StewartsvilleMO), and our school webpage (https://www.stewartsville.k12.mo.us/). Information will also be shared using our text blast and voice call notification systems. What does a 2-hour delay mean? A delay causes schools to open two hours later than the normal start time (10:00 a.m.). The school will close at the regular time (3:10 p.m.). The school will not be open for students to enter until (9:15 a.m.). The buses will run normal routes on a two hour delay. Any before-school programs/practices/activities will be canceled. A limited breakfast will be served (cold cereal and milk) on 2-hour delay days. When the opening of school has been delayed due to weather, afterschool programs will operate as scheduled. (Preschool will not be in session on days we utilize a late start.) What if inclement weather develops during the school day? We open with the intent of remaining open for the full school day. Early dismissals are used only in extreme situations. In such cases, all afterschool activities will be canceled. If we need to close early, students will still be served lunch before dismissal. When will school be made up? State law requires us to have a minimum of 1044 hours of school per school year. Our 2019-2020 school calendar has been built with the intention of students attending school for a total of 1112 hours. What this means is in the case of a canceled day of school, late start, or early dismissal, we will not need to make up any time until we miss a total 68 hours or 10 days' worth of time. If we end up needing to make up hours/days, we will adjust the calendar as follows • If we have to make up no more than a 1/2 day, May 20 will become a full day of school. • If we have to make up no more than 1 ½ days, May 20 and May 21 will become full days of school. *The Professional Development day for teachers will not be rescheduled. • If we have to make up no more than 2 ½ days, May 20, May 21, and May 22 will become full days of school. *The Professional Development day for teachers will not be rescheduled. Sincerely, Michael L. Stephenson Superintendent
School Notification System TEST: November, 13th @ 7:00pm Over the past month, we have been working on updating our school text blast and our voice call notification system. We will be testing the system this evening at 7:00 p.m. If you do not receive the text message and/or the voice call, please contact the school tomorrow and provide us your contact information. We will then cross-reference your current contact information with the information we have in the system to find the issue. The text blast will come from 98901 and will read From#TheNest: followed by the message. The phone call will come from the school’s main phone line, 816-669-3258. When answering the call, you must speak into the phone for the messaging system to be activated.
