Inclement Weather Plans

Dear Fremont families,

It’s getting chilly outside and that means it’s time to prepare for potential winter weather conditions. 

When severe weather is in the forecast, Roseburg School District decides whether to delay or close school based on the following considerations:

  • the ability to operate school buses safely

  • the ability of students and parents to drive safely

  • the ability of students to walk safely   

  • the ability of employees to get to work on time and safely​​

When we’re expecting ice or snow, our district starts checking road conditions around 4 in the morning, by driving some bus routes and tuning into local weather reports. 

Our priority is to ensure that travel is safe for ALL students. While conditions in some areas of town may appear clear, other areas may be experiencing ice, heavy snow or other hazardous conditions. 

Decisions to delay or close school will be made by 5:30 a.m. A decision to close school following a delay will be made by 7:30 a.m. The decision to delay or close school may be made the day prior if necessary.

Families will receive notifications through our One Call phone and email system and can refer to our website and Facebook page for notifications as well. To make sure your correct contact information is included in our One Call system, please contact your child’s school directly.
