Winter Weather RemindersDo you know how the CSD communicates school closures due to inclement weather?

*DOWNLOAD OUR APP (Search for "Clinton School District" on Google Play or the Apple App Store. When school must close due to inclement weather, you will receive push notifications directly to your phone.)

*PHONE CALL/TEXT MESSAGE (The successful delivery of this information is dependent upon accurate contact information obtained from school records. If your contact information changes, please let your child's school office know as soon as possible. Also, you must opt-in to receive text messages. Text "Y" to 67587. The school must have your cell phone number on file for you to receive text messages.)

*FACEBOOK/TWITTER (Follow us on both platforms to stay informed. Facebook-"Clinton Schools" Twitter-@ClintonMoCards)

*NEWS MEDIA (School closing information will also be provided to KDKD and Kansas City news stations)

****2-HOUR LATE START INFORMATION****
Please be aware that if the district chooses to have a late start due to weather conditions, all buildings will start 2 hours later than normal. Students riding the bus to school would be picked up 2 hours later than normal as well. Breakfast will not be served.
The following would be the start times for each building for a late start.
*CHS/CTS-9:45 (doors open at 9:15)
*CMS-9:45 (doors open at 9:25)
*CIS-10:05 (doors open at 9:30)
*Henry Elementary-10:10 (doors open at 9:30)
*CECC-morning classes cancelled
full day classes start at 10:00 (doors open at 9:55)
1/2 day afternoon classes regular schedule

***ALTERNATIVE METHODS OF INSTRUCTION***
Beginning last school year, DESE (Department of Elementary and Secondary Education) began allowing school districts to implement Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) plans on days that school is not able to be in session due to inclement weather. When school districts implement their AMI Plan, the school hours lost due to closure do not have to be made up. Please be aware that the CSD does have this option for inclement weather, but does not plan to use this option for at least the first school closure.
