Delayed Opening/Early Dismissal Procedures for Classified Employees
For one (1) hour delays staff should report to their schools as close to their regular designated work times as road conditions allow for their safety. For two (2) hour delays staff should report to their schools one (1) hour later than their regular designated work time if road conditions allow for their safety. For early dismissal employees may leave at a time designated by their immediate supervisor. Employees should clock in and out at their actual arrival or departure times and any time missed should be made up by Friday of the following week and recorded in Time Clock as worked. If an employee is unable to make up the missed time, Emergency Leave may be requested in half day increments.

Delayed Opening/Early Dismissal Procedures for Certified Employees
