JAMESTOWN – Here’s some good news for those who feared that online learning would bring an end to snow days, this week Jamestown Public Schools announced their delayed start and snow day protocols.

As the weather begins to change, officials may need to delay or close schools due to conditions. If schools are closed or have a delayed opening, an announcement will be made on area radio and television stations.

Additionally, the school will post on the social media as well as communicate with families and staff using their direct messaging system.

Parents and students can expect to receive telephone, email and text messages on delayed openings or school closings, as long as their contact information is up-to-date in the district’s system.

If the district calls a delayed opening, starting times will be affected.

For a one-hour delay, school will start as follows:

Elementary Schools – 9:20 a.m.

Middle Schools – 9:30 a.m.

JHS – 9:00 a.m.

For a two-hour delay, school will start as follows:

Elementary Schools – 10:20 a.m.

Middle Schools – 10:30 a.m.

JHS – 10:00 a.m.

Once schools are in session, they will usually remain open if adverse weather conditions develop during the day. Officials are asking each household to develop an emergency plan for any such circumstance.

In some cases, after-school and evening activities may be canceled. School leaders say a decision will be made by 1 p.m.

In the case of school closings or an early closing, all activities including: clubs, sports, alternative education, board meetings and community activities held at a school will be canceled for that evening.
