When the Weather Outside is Frightful, How Do You Know if School Is Closed?

As we plan ahead for inclement weather, the Francis Howell School District would like to remind you about our procedures regarding school closures.

In the event that school is cancelled the night before due to inclement weather, information will be posted and notifications will be sent out between 9:00 – 10:00 p.m. In the event that school is cancelled in the morning, information will be posted and notifications will be sent out between 5:00 – 6:00 a.m. 

If school is closed due to inclement weather, parents and staff will receive a phone call, email, and/or text message
via the rapid notification system, SchoolMessenger. School closure information can also be found on the District website, Facebook, Twitter, and local TV and radio stations. 

For more information, please review FHSD’s snow closure procedures.

If School is Cancelled:

  • School buildings and other school facilities will be closed.
  • All extra-curricular school activities, field trips, games, school concerts, school plays, etc. will be canceled.
  • If you have tickets for a non-school event in a school facility, contact the sponsor of the event.
