Inclement Weather and Emergency Procedures
In the event South Lane School District is forced to close or delay opening any of its schools due to weather or other emergency, designated media sources will be contacted.

|KPNW||1120 AM||Western Oregon|
|KLCC ||89.7 FM ||Western Oregon|

|Local television stations are informed, but are not always able to report school closure information up-to-the-minute. The most up-to-date information can always be found at www.valleyinfo.net.|
South Lane School District may use an automated dialer to call and email staff and students regarding school related emergencies. It is important that your child's school has updated phone and email information for this to be a success.
Emergency Release Information
- If a two-hour delay is reported, there will be no morning kindergarten.
- If an elementary school is closed early or evacuated due to an emergency, every attempt will be made to contact families by phone (please make sure your child's school has all available phone numbers to reach you in an emergency). Students will not be allowed to walk home without a responsible adult. Bussed students will not be dropped-off at an empty house, without prior permission.
- Students will be kept at the safest location possible during any emergency situation and will be cared for by district staff until they are picked-up by their families. Please be prepared to show identification and follow on-site check-out procedures when picking up your child.
- If a middle or high school is closed early or evacuated due to an emergency, regular dismissal procedures will be used. If the emergency prohibits regular procedures please listen to the radio stations above or click http://www.valleyinfo.net/ to get information on evacuation procedures.
- If a school is closed early or evacuated for any reason, media sources will be notified and information will be posted at http://www.valleyinfo.net/.
