The Superintendent's Office will be in charge of making the decision to close school. If the decision is made to cancel school for the day, administrators will contact all radio and television stations in Topeka by 6:30 A.M. that morning, if at all possible. The radio and television stations verify the closing so that any announcements you hear regarding closing of schools in U.S.D. #450 will be accurate. School is in session unless cancellation announcements are made over the stations.
However, it is the parent's decision to determine whether or not their child should attend school due to weather conditions. School is not to be dismissed early, therefore, parents may pick up their children during the school day, when they feel it is necessary due to weather conditions.
