School Closing & Alerts

With the first snowfall in the books, we wanted to remind families of our winter weather information. Minnesota winters seem to create the potential for severe weather warranting school closings or delays nearly daily. We take the responsibility for each weather call very seriously despite the decisions being far from straightforward.

Our goal is to make the “right” call when it comes to closings and delays. Many variables are considered when attempting to best ensure the safety of students and staff as we attempt to accommodate all of the families in the District. Weather-related decisions in a District with a land-area of nearly 165 square miles with varying land features from Chisago City to Taylors Falls will not always seem perfect. The status of neighboring districts may even be different. Keep in mind, we will do what we deem to be best for Chisago Lakes. Ultimately, a student’s attendance at school is a parent or guardian’s decision. If parents and guardians feel it is unsafe for their child to travel to school, the absence will be excused.
