Emergency School Closing Information

< Back

The Neenah Joint School District provides transportation for approximately 3,000 of its 6,400 students. Under normal circumstances, a decision to close or delay school is predicated on the safe transportation of our children to and from school and will generally be made no later than 6 a.m. This will provide time for local radio and television stations to broadcast school closings, allow time for the bus contractor to notify drivers not to report and allow time for parents to make day care arrangements for children who will be staying home. Safety for children, employees and parents is the overriding factor in making the decision to close school.

When a decision is made to close the Neenah Public Schools, it has been agreed that all private schools being served with transportation in the District will also be closed. An announcement about school cancellations will be sent via text message and e-mail to all parents and staff members through the District's messaging service. An announcement will also be posted on the District website, Facebook page and Twitter feed. The following radio and television stations will be contacted to broadcast any school closing announcements:
