Greetings Camas families,

According to the National Weather Service, there is a chance we may see some freezing temperatures next week, so now seems like a great time to share what happens when inclement weather occurs.

How You Will Be Notified
If school is closed or delayed due to inclement weather, the district’s emergency notification system will call, text, and email families around 6:00 a.m. If snow routes are in effect, the message will indicate so.

If a two-hour delay is implemented on a Wednesday, all scheduled early releases will be canceled, and students will finish the day as if it were a regular day. In the event of a two-hour delay:

  • Students should arrive at their bus stops two hours later than they normally arrive, but please allow for delays.
  • There will be no AM preschool.
  • Extended Day will open at 8:30 a.m.
  • There will be no Cascadia Tech a.m. bus service. If Evergreen School District is operating on time, Cascadia Tech will be on time as well.
  • There will be no zero period classes.

You can learn all about our decision-making process on our Inclement Weather & Closures page. Insider Tip: If you need to know about delays or closures before 6:00 a.m., this page shows what we post for the media right when we post it, which is typically around 5:00 a.m.

Your Decision Matters!
As a parent, you may decide to keep your child or children at home if you feel it’s not safe to make the trip to school. You are in the best position to decide about your local conditions and your child’s judgment and driving capabilities. While we go to extensive measures to determine if roads district-wide are safe for travel, it’s physically impossible for us to be on every street corner and side street at all times. We rely on you to be the final judge when it comes to the safety of your child/children.
