Weather Related School Closing Procedures
The following is from the Student Handbook regarding school closing procedures:
School Closing Procedures
Our transportation is provided by South Washington County Schools, so if they cancel school for the day, MSA will cancel classes as well. If South Washington County Schools are listed as a late start, MSA will not be open.
MSA will list our school closings, due to weather and emergencies, with the four major news networks: ABC (KSTP), CBS (WCCO), FOX (Fox9), and NBC (KAREl 1). We will also update the banner on the MSA website, leave a message on the main school phone line, and notify parents/guardians using the Skylert system.
For the first five (5) weather-related closings, MSA will conduct e-learning days (see below). Any additional weather-related closings will result in the school year being extended in June.
If school is closed during the course of the school day, students who normally ride the bus to school will be bused home.
Students who normally walk home, will walk. Students who are transported to school by parents will need to be picked up by parent-arranged transportation.
On e-learning days, students should receive an email from their teachers with a description of the e-learning assignment for the day and look for an e-learning posting on the teacher's Google Classroom by 10:00 am. Teachers will post their office hours along with how to contact them with any questions concerning the assignment. It is expected that students will complete the assignment prior to the next day's class, or as described in the e-lesson.
