With hopes that not sharing this plan would change the unfavorable forecast for the end of the week..VCPS releases our 2019-2020 Winter Weather Plan with our parents, guardians, and community members.  

 
Our Winter Weather Plan, included as an attached with this email, will provide you with information about school decision-making process, communication strategies, modified schedules, and more.  We ask that you please take the time to review this plan prior to any inclement winter weather affecting our school district.
 
Last school year, VCPS used all four make-up days and requested 2 additional days to be waived by the Governor.  This year, we have once again included four make-up days into the district calendar.  Please see the link for the days that have been identified on the district calendar and know that per North Dakota Century Code, we cannot make-up a school day until after January 1 of each school year.https://www.hiliners.org/pdf/SCHOOL_CALENDAR_2019-2020_2.pdf
 
Finally, please check out a video created by one of our very own Hi-Liner and Washington Elementary students providing you with additional and fun information about our Winter Weather Plan.  We encourage you to watch and share on Youtube!
 
If you have any questions, please feel free to email your questions to josh.johnson@k12.nd.us or jess.storhoff@k12.nd.us or call the district office at 701.845.0483.  
 
Let's hope that Mother Nature changes her plans this week and will wait with winter for another two months,
 
Mr. Johnson
