Preparing for Inclement Weather

In preparation for colder temperatures, please take a moment to review APS inclement weather procedures for 2022-23:

  • The first SEVEN inclement weather days will be treated as traditional “snow days.” If the allotted days are used, APS will revert to full distance learning (virtual) days to allow learning to continue and avoid impacting spring break or adding more days at the end of the school year. This seven-day threshold is based on the number of days built into the calendar for inclement weather.
  • Five Weather Codes:
    Code 1 – All Schools and Offices Closed;
    Code 2 – Two Hour Delay;
    Code 3 – Early Release;
    Code 4 – After School Activities Canceled; and
    Code 5 – Weekend Activities Canceled.
  • NEW: As an added safety measure, Extended Day and Check In programs will close at the same time schools close in the event of an Early Release due to weather conditions (previously Extended Day remained open until 4 p.m.).
  • Decisions about the following day will be announced by 6 p.m., when possible.  Morning decisions will be announced by 5 a.m., as needed, based on conditions overnight.
