In cases of inclement weather, the Chautauqua Program will adhere to the following procedures:
If there is a delayed start to the school day, Chautauqua operates on a regular day's schedule.
If school is canceled, Chautauqua is not in session.
If school is dismissed early, Chautauqua will provide care upon dismissal, depending on the weather forecast. We will contact all aftercare families on that day with the procedures for the students enrolled in our program.
In the event that all afterschool activities are canceled, that does not include the Chautauqua Program. However, we ask that parents arrive as soon as possible.
WSD Inclement Weather/School Closing Information
Timely communication with our district families is always a priority, but especially important in emergency school closing situations. If WSD schools are forced to close due to inclement weather, parents/guardians and students will be notified in the following ways:
District Phone Call/Text/Email
The Wentzville School District utilizes Blackboard, a mass communication broadcast system that allows school administrators to notify all households by phone, text, and email within minutes of an emergency or unplanned event that causes early dismissal or school cancellation. The service may also be used occasionally by individual schools to communicate general announcements or reminders. Please be sure to notify the school office about any change in your personal contact information. You always have the option of how you would like to receive notifications (you can turn off the call and only receive texts and/or emails, for example). Simply contact the Community Relations office to change your delivery preferences by calling 636/327-3800, ext. 20358, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
When inclement weather causes the District to cancel school or dismiss classes early, please check the following television and radio stations for school closing information.
These TV and radio stations also have websites with the same school closing information. Look for the Wentzville R-IV School District. Please be advised that individual schools will not be listed separately; closings will always be listed as the Wentzville R-IV School District.
The District website will be updated with any emergency school closing information. Please check the homepage.
Facebook and Twitter
The WSD has its own Facebook page (Wentzville School District), so be sure to “like” us! It's a great way to keep up-to-date with the latest happenings in the District, complete with pictures. You can also follow the District on Twitter, just search for WSDinfo. Both social media sites will be used not only to keep community members informed about the latest news in the District, but in the event of a school closing or emergency, this will be yet another means of communicating quickly and efficiently.
WSD App Push Notification
The WSD has an app you can download and choose to follow your child's school. The app will be an additional notification tool used in the event of a school closing or emergency to send followers a push notification directly to your phone. You can download the WSD app from iTunes or Google Play.
