Dear Southern Boone School District Family,
Now that most of the leaves have fallen from the trees, all eyes are on the upcoming winter season. We want to take a moment to remind parents/guardians about the different methods of communication the school distinct uses to share important information with our families and the community.
When a decision is made due to inclement weather to cancel school, run bus snow routes or dismiss school early, there are a variety of methods of communication that we will use to notify parents, families and the community.
Different forms of communication the school district uses:
Automated Phone Call: Check that your cell and home phone numbers are up-to-date in the SIS portal.
Text Message: Check that your cell phone number is up-to-date in the SIS portal.
Email: Check that you have a current email in the SIS Portal.
School Website: A message will be posted at the top of the homepage at www.sbschools.us.
App Notification: Download the Southern Boone App to receive a push notification from the school district’s app.
Social Media: Connect with the school district on social media.
Local TV: The school district will be added to the TV's list of closings and cancellations.
Local Radio: The school district will be added to the radio station's list of closings and cancellations.
It is important for families to have multiple ways to receive information and important announcements from the school district. We will make every effort to provide cancellation notices to our families as early as possible.
The school district has a total of six snow days built into the 2022-2023 district calendar and plans to use traditional snow days first when inclement weather causes school to be canceled. If needed, the school district has the option of using five Alternative Methods of Instruction (AMI) or virtual learning days this school year.
If you have any questions about the different types of communication, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your cooperation and support as we prepare for the upcoming winter weather season.
Yours in education,
Dr. Tim Roth
