In the event of inclement weather conditions, the Scappoose School District will either start school with a 2-hour delay or completely cancel school. Busses will be delayed for 2 hours. For example, if your child usually gets picked up at 7:35 am, the bus should be at your stop at 9:35 am. Snow route information can be found here.
If the weather does not improve within the 2-hour delay, the remainder of the school day may be canceled. The decision to have a 2-hour delay or cancel school will be communicated through Scappoose School District’s School Messenger phone system. Each family with an active phone number will receive a call and email, so if you miss the call, you will be able to read the message in your email. Please let the school office know if there have been any changes to your contact information.
Cancelation information will also be available via FlashAlert and your local news station.
