No Student Snow Days in Distance Learning
In the event of severe weather, there will be no snow days for students and distance learning will continue. Students are expected to attend their online classes and complete work as they would during a typical distance learning school day.
In the event of snow or inclement weather, Staff will report to the building or work remotely, as previously scheduled for that day. If you are scheduled to work in a building, you should report to the building. If you are scheduled to work remotely, you should continue to work remotely.
Level 3 Snow Emergency Procedures for Staff
If the City of Cincinnati and/or Hamilton County declare a Level 3 Snow Emergency, all employees should stay home. Because students will remain on distance learning even if the City or County declares a Level 3 emergency, staff who are able to work remotely should do so. Level 3 is the most severe level in the weather-alert system. If an employee’s county of residence declares a Level 3 Snow Emergency, the employee should stay home.
Non-Public and Charter Transportation
In the event of severe inclement weather, CPS may decide to delay services up to 2 hours and/or cancel yellow bus transportation services for chartered community and non-public schools. In the event of a Level 3 Emergency, there will be no yellow bus service provided.
Any changes to yellow bus service will be communicated via robocall from Transportation to impacted schools, and through local media outlets for all impacted stakeholders.
Students utilizing public transit through Metro will not be impacted by any service cancelations by CPS due to inclement weather. Families are encouraged to utilize the free transit app and/or contact METRO directly to receive updated service information for their specific student’s route.
All supervisors should communicate with their staff about plans to respond to these procedures. All employees are expected to know the severe weather procedure as it applies to them and to contact their supervisors with questions.
