• Inclement Weather Policy


    Dear Students & Parents---


    The advent of cold weather and power outages seems a good time to review our Inclement Weather Policy, should conditions become such that the school day is disrupted by extreme weather. 

    StudentLink will follow the Vashon Island School District's (VISD) action regarding school-related delays or closures.   Please consult your local radio, television or internet for the district's decision, or check the VISD website www.vashonsd.org or www.schoolreport.org.  

    If the district announces that school will open 2.5 hours late—StudentLink (and VHS) will open at 10:30 am.

    • If you have a meeting scheduled for that day, please call 463-8688 before you leave your house to be sure I have arrived.  Travel only if you can do so safely.  Your meeting can be rescheduled, or if necessary, a phone meeting may take place instead.   

    If the district announces that school is closed for the day-- StudentLink will also be closed. 

    • All meetings will be cancelled for the day. 

    The Superintendent of VISD generally makes the decision by 7:00 p.m. for the next morning.  Usually he’ll start with a 2.5 hour late start.  Then, if conditions worsen, he will make and communicate a closure decision prior to 6:00 a.m.  Again, notice of a change from late start to school closure will be reported on radio, television, etc.
