SCHOOL CLOSURES

GET INFORMATION ON SCHOOL CLOSURES

The District will send out texts, emails, and/or phone calls with any information and updates regarding school closures. This information will also be posted on the website's Alert Banner pop-up.

Below are other was to stay informed regarding school closures, inclement weather, and transportation changes/issues

INCLEMENT WEATHER & BUS TRANSPORTATION

Hazardous weather, floods, or unexpected emergencies may force changes in bus transportation schedules and pick-up/drop-off points for Mount Baker Students. Information is announced only when there is a closure or schedule change. Please remember:

  • Buses may be running late due to road conditions.

  • Due to adverse conditions and for their personal safety, please have your student stand as far back from the edge of the road, prior to the bus stopping.

  • The bus cannot stop on inclines.

BUS SNOW ROUTES

For students living in certain areas, their pick up and drop off stops may change. Some areas in the district are difficult for school buses to maneuver when there is ice and snow on the road. Children who live in these areas may need to catch their bus at an alternate location; these are called Snow Bus Routes.

Find out ahead of time if you live on a Snow Bus Route by checking the schedule and talking with your bus driver before it snows. If you have a transportation question or concern (other than, "is the bus running on schedule?"), please call the Transportation Office at (360) 383-2060.
