• Emergency Weather Information


    During periods of extreme weather and/or power outages, radio/TV stations will report closures and changes of schedule. The latest information can be accessed at https://www.flashalert.net or by calling the VISD District Office at 206-463-2121 for a recorded message.  

    We monitor weather forecasts to make decisions about inclement weather conditions during distance learning and whenever possible we will make an early decision by 7:00 p.m. for the next morning. If snow is predicted, we will call for schools to operate on an alternate inclement weather schedule. Please review the operating protocols for an alternate schedule:

    Alternate Inclement Weather Schedule:  

    • Small Group In-person Learning - In-person learning for small groups (ECEAP, Special Education, ELL, CTE, etc.) will be suspended during inclement weather. Any in-person instruction for small groups will move to distance learning. 

    • Half-day Schedule
      • CES students will attend their morning classes, ending their school-day at noon.
      • McM and VHS students will follow their Friday schedule ending their school day at 11:50 a.m.

    • Limited or No Connectivity - In the event of limited or no connectivity, students will work on asynchronous assignments that require no internet. Asynchronous work will be prepared in advance and provided to students. 

    • Athletics - All athletic programs will be cancelled during inclement weather.

    • Food Services - Food services will be suspended during inclement weather. 

    • HUB - Closed
