Emergency Information

In the event of a school closure due to inclement weather or an emergency, the information will be updated on the FlashAlert.net site . Washougal School District also uses an auto-notification system to let parents and staff know about school delays and closures. We will contact the phone number listed in the student information system for your family in the event of a weather incident. You can see what number we have on file for you by logging into WESPaC’s Family Access. The phone call will come from caller ID 360-954-3279.

General Notes:

The bus number will identify bus routes changed due to inclement weather, if on snow routes, 2 or 3 hour late start, or not operating.

Special services routes- students will be notified by driver if other than their regular stop location.

If a bus is on snow route or canceled for AM, it will be the same for the PM route unless the restriction is lifted.

If school closes early, there will be no PM Preschool, no PM SPACE, and afternoon/evening Community Education classes will be canceled. There will be no use of school facilities by outside entities.
