Inclement Weather Notice
Grades K-4: Inclement Weather and Early School Closings
School may be canceled if the safety of students and employees may be threatened by severe weather or other circumstances. The superintendent will make a decision about closing school or school buildings as early in the day as possible. Notifications will be placed on the district website, www.rockford.k12.mn.us, and through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. School closing announcements will be broadcast over KARE (11) TV and also placed on their web site at www.KARE11.com (click on School Alert). Announcements may also be made to radio station KRWC (1360) - Buffalo, WCCO (4) TV, KSTP (5) TV and KMSP (9) TV.

Inclement Weather Plan and School Closing Procedures
As a reminder for our NWSISD families, if a school district closes, all transportation in or out of that district is canceled for the day. If a school district decides to have a 2-hour late start, due to weather, no AM transportation will be provided, however, PM transportation will be provided.

Generally, school will be in session if it is felt that the buses can make their routes in relative safety. Even if school is in session, parents are asked to assess their situation and determine whether or not it is safe for their children to attend school on a particular day. If a parent determines not to send their child to school due to deteriorating weather conditions, the absence will be excused.
