To help everyone be better prepared for the approaching winter weather, Maryville R-II is sharing the following procedures for this school year.

Announcements concerning cancellations, early outs, late starts, and/or the use of hard-surface-only bus routes will be made locally through the following: radio, KNIM 97.1 FM and 1580 AM and KXCV/KRNW 90.5 FM and 88.9 AM; Spoofhound mobile texting service – use link on the website to enroll; school reach, which is an automatic calling service for employees only; social media with a suggestion to rely only on school official accounts like @spoofhoundsupt; television, KQ2, KCTV5, Fox 4 and KSHB41. There are sometimes technical difficulties with these stations so please check a backup system if in doubt.

In the event of a late start, everything for grades k-12 is on a two-hour delay. School will begin at 9:55 am, and bus stops will be two hours later than normal. There will be no morning GO Program childcare and no before-school practices/activities. Breakfast will only be served at Eugene Field, not at the middle or high schools.

On early-out days, there will be no after-school athletic or club practices/activities and no middle school stat classes. There will typically be afternoon GO Program childcare at Eugene Field unless an announcement is made otherwise.

Practices and activities will be made on a commonsense basis. Typically, nothing will start prior to noon to allow time for roads to be cleared and conditions to improve.
