    During periods of inclement weather, delays and/or closures are based upon several factors: weather conditions both current and predicted to occur during the course of the coming day, road conditions/closures, and the ability of the school sites to prepare for the arrival of students for that day.
    If a school closure is called, all extracurricular travel will also be canceled during that period.
    School delays/closures will be announced and published as noted below:
    • Delay or closure information will be posted on the District's main website page, on each school's main website page and on the Weather Information page (under Our District). https://www.nwasco.k12.or.us/Domain/452
    • Flashalert (Flashalert.net) will be notified (TV banners - we are listed as North Wasco County Schools) and Flashalert will send a text message (only if you sign up for this service on their site).
    • An email will be sent out to all district staff.
    • Information will be posted on Twitter (@NWCSD21).
    • Information will be announced on local radio stations (KACI, KODL, KYYT and KIHR).
    • An email will be sent to school board members, law enforcement agencies, media, Columbia Gorge ESD, CG Community College, Head Start, Dufur SD and St. Mary's. 
    • Schools are asked to change their main voice mail message to reflect a delay or closure.
