Snow Schedule Coming for 14-15

Based on overwhelming support from parents and staff, Parkway will implement a snow schedule as one option to address severe weather next year.

A snow schedule would be used in the event weather conditions do not warrant cancelling school, but are problematic enough to cause delays. This option would give students and staff additional time to arrive safely at school. A snow schedule would also prevent having to make up that snow day later.

Parkway’s snow schedule will include a 2-hour delayed start using the same schedule as Parkway’s monthly delayed start days.

Snow Schedule Start Times:
If a snow schedule is used, the school day will include the following schedule.

Tier 1 schools
9:35 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Tier 2 schools
10:20 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.

Tier 3 schools
11:05 a.m. – 4 p.m.
