OPS Severe Weather Dismissal Procedures

Area radio and television stations will begin carrying the announcement of any school closings at or before 6:00 AM. Our Superintendent will make the decision in advance of this time after evaluating all information on weather, street, and safety conditions. Only closing announcements will be made.

If no closing announcement is made, schools will be open and classes will be in session. In the event of an unexpected weather emergency, schools may be dismissed early at the discretion of the Superintendent.
