Severe Winter Weather Reporting


Central Valley Early Learning Center follows CVSD procedures for severe weather reporting. A decision by CVSD to close or delay school due to winter weather will be made by 6:00 a.m on the day in consideration. Information regarding a delay or closure will be announced or posted as follows:

  • CVSD Blackboard Connect automated messaging system (phone call and/or text)
  • - Delays & Closures
  • Bus Route Conditions Hotline at 509-558-5572
  • Radio and Television Stations

Even when school is running on time, buses may be running late as they slow down to safely travel on winter roads. Some buses may follow “snow routes” in the higher elevations of our district. 

If the school district announces a delay of the start of school Monday-Thursday, all morning preschool classes will be canceled. Afternoon preschool classes will begin at normal times. All-Day Preschool and Extended Day will begin at the delayed time. If the delay occurs on a Friday, All-Day Preschool will be canceled and Extended Day will start 2 hours late (as we only have All-Day Preschool and Extended Day on Fridays).

  • Example for Extended Day: normally opens at 7:00 am; a one hour delay will open at 8:00am; a two-hour delay will open at 9:00am.
  • Example for All Day Preschool: School would begin at 9:30am for a one hour delay and at 10:30am for a two hour delay.

Extended Day Parents Note: Extended Day will be closed when CVSD schools are closed for severe weather.

We appreciate your patience and assistance in the event of adverse weather conditions. Your child’s safety is a top priority for our school. Thank you!
