School delay and closure information

Flash Alert contains up to date information about school delays and closures. 

When decisions are made by Renton School’s Superintendent to delay or cancel school due to bad weather or other emergencies, the district works quickly to ensure the safety of all students and staff and to communicate changes to school schedules.

All parents and employees should expect to receive a call regarding the decision to delay or close schools from the district’s School Messenger system well before 6:00 AM to the family/staff member’s “primary” phone number. Information is also provided on local radio and TV stations, posted at the top front page of all school websites, and posted on the district’s social media sites Facebook and Twitter. Please continue to monitor these locations as it may be necessary for the district to make additional announcements and possibly changes to decisions due to changing weather conditions.

•If the message indicates that all schools and district offices are closed, only pre-identified essential personnel are expected to come to work.
