School Cancellations / Delayed Starts

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING DELAYED START DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER

The Auburn School Department has instituted a delayed start policy when necessary due to inclement weather.

What is a delayed start?

The start of school will be delayed two hours. If there is a delayed start, morning Pre-K classes will be canceled. On half-day Wednesdays, there will not be a delayed start.

How will my child’s bus pick-up time be affected?


Your child’s bus pick-up time will be delayed two hours. For example, if the bus usually picks up your child at 7:45 a.m., the pick-up time will be 9:45 a.m. for a delayed start.

What is the school’s schedule when there is a delayed start?


Please check the school webpage for the school your child attends.  As an example, the East Auburn Community School morning schedule for a delayed start is as follows:


•    10:10 – 10:25 Student Arrival - All students report to the Gym. Students should not arrive before 10:10. 

•    10:10 – 10:25 Breakfast 

•    10:25 Students report to classrooms. The remainder of the day follows our regular schedule.


Please contact the school office for the school your child attends with any questions about the delayed start policy.
