Foggy Day Procedure

When a Foggy Day Schedule is called, the School District will announce via television stations and other media outlets one of the three plans.

PLAN A

All classes will begin at 9:45 a.m.

All students will be dismissed from class at their regularly scheduled time. Bus riding students will need to be at their respective bus stop by 8:15 a.m.

PLAN B

NO BUS RUNS, INCLUDING THE SHUTTLE

All classes will begin at 9:45 a.m. for students who walk to school or have their own transportation. If a child is a bus rider and you wish to bring him/her to school, you must provide your own transportation.

PLAN C

NO SCHOOL

All classes have been canceled due to severe fog conditions.

For information concerning fog delays, please tune in to the following stations or visit the Earlimart School District website by 6:45 a.m.

Television Channels: 18 KVPT, 30 KFSN, 47 KJEO

Internet: http://www.earlimart.org

The television stations will only announce or display the fog delay “PLAN” so it is important that you become familiar with the fog delay plans. We appreciate your help and cooperation during foggy weather. Our primary concern is the safety of our students. For this reason, we request that you do not send your child to school before 9:30 a.m. during a fog delay. This will enable us to help protect your child on their way to school, but also after they arrive.

The school district will also send out an automated notification to parents through an automated telephone message. Please make sure your contact information is updated at your child’s school.

NOTE: As per code 13 CCR 122, the bus driver is authorized to assess the weather conditions during operation. If deemed unsafe to continue, the driver will pull off to the side of the road and only continue on the route when it is safe to do so. The transportation director will notify all schools regarding a delay.
