Wednesday, January 5, 2022 – All KSD Schools Will Be Closed

In emergencies, such as snow, icy weather conditions, and power outages, our top priority is the safety of students and staff. We recognize school closures disrupt family schedules, can create hardships, and may extend the school year. Making a decision about weather-related school closures is always difficult because so many different situations have to be considered. We do our very best to balance the many interests at stake. Still, we recognize that no matter what decision we make, it will not please everyone.

Wednesday, January 5, 2022, all KSD Schools will be closed. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution by our Inclement Weather team for the following reasons:

  • Tomorrow, a two-hour delay is not an option as Wednesdays are two-hour early release days for students.
  • Side streets and sidewalks, especially on the Eastside of our district, continue to be covered in compact snow and ice.
  • Rain, snow, and freezing temperatures are forecasted in our district through 9 am tomorrow.

Please note that this means there is no am or pm preschool, no out-of-district transportation, no sports, events, or activities on Wednesday, January 5. The admin center is open. 

Please also note the National Weather Service is also forecasting rain and snow on Wednesday night and flooding later this week.
