In cases of extreme weather, the Superintendent is authorized by the School Board to close schools or to delay the starting time. When such conditions exist, the school system notifies WCCO Radio and the KARE 11 television station, which in turn pass this information to you.
The decision to close or hold school is made by 6:00 am; no decisions are made the day before# Unless you hear over WCCO or KARE 11 that schools are closed, they will be open. Please do not call the radio or television station or the school switchboard.
Generally, it is not considered wise to dismiss school once it starts. Many working parents are not prepared to receive children early, so safety becomes a major concern. In case of inclement weather, parents may personally decide not to let their children come to school. They may also pick children up from school anytime during the day. We will not dismiss students upon phone request.
For students enrolled through the Northwest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD): If the district that you reside in closes school or delays school, there will be no morning and afternoon bus service to Fridley on that day. If students do come to school, it will be the parent's responsibility to transport their students to and from school.
Children absent in inclement weather when school is held, will be marked absent and treated the same as in any other legitimate absence. The school, though, must receive proper parental notice.
In short, the Fridley Public School District is dedicated to the safety and education of your children. It is the District's intent to keep schools open every school day possible during inclement weather.
The Fridley School District is committed to providing a high quality, challenging, international education through the International Baccalaureate Programmes for students in grades K-12. Hayes Elementary, Stevenson Elementary, Fridley Middle School, and Fridley High School are IB World Schools.
