School District of Clayton

One option for addressing inclement weather is opening on a snow schedule. If the weather or the roads are not severe enough to warrant cancellation, but problematic enough to cause delays, this option will give students and staff additional time to get to school without having to use another full snow day. The announcement that Clayton Schools are opening on a snow schedule would be made at the same time and via the same channels that are used to announce school closings. Please review the following items so that you can better understand what would happen if the District opens on a “Snow Schedule:”

  • All schools will start one hour late, the same times as on a Late Start Days.
  • All staff may delay the time they report to work by up to one hour to allow for weather-related travel conditions.
  • VICC buses and the Meramec bus will pick up one hour late, the same times as on Late Start Days.
  • Schools will follow Late Start Day schedule with the exception that there will be no before-school childcare provided at the Family Center or any elementary school.
  • All before-school meetings, programs, sports practices and activities are canceled, including:
    • KidZone at Captain, Meramec and the Family Center/CHS
    • GCC at Glenridge
    • Zero-hour classes as Clayton High School
  • ·All school buildings will be open at the following times to receive students:
    • Family Center  – regular “sign-in” time for Late Start Days
