Winter Weather Plan

The winter weather season is upon us, and Montevideo Public Schools would like to make families and the school community aware of its winter weather plan.  If school is called off due to inclement weather, school buildings will be closed and there will be no school or Community Ed. activities; however, classes will remain in session under E-Learning Days.  The State of Minnesota allows for five E-Learning Days per academic year. Check your child’s school E-Learning Plan (printed in the Student Handbook linked on the school websites) for more instruction and details in the event of an E-Learning Day.

Montevideo Schools uses a message notification system to communicate weather and school-related announcements to all households and parents.  Notifications are automated and sent by call, text and/or email using Family contact information in the JMC Portal.  It’s very important that parents check their primary contact information in JMC to ensure that their primary telephone number and e-mail address are correct and up-to-date.  Montevideo families and school staff members with children in multiple school buildings may receive more than one notification.

Weather-related announcements are also posted on the district website, the school social media sites and on radio and television stations and websites:  KDMA Radio, Q102 Willmar, KDJS Radio, WCCO, KARE 11, KSTP, KMSP FOX 9.

The Hawks Nest Early Childhood Center has procedures for inclement weather days for their programs.  View:  Late Start/School Closings at the Hawk's Nest
