Renton schools plans for early dismissal Friday

Tomorrow will have regular Friday late start and early dismissal.

From Renton School District:

Renton School District administration and support staff today have been working with the National Weather Service to prepare for the winter snow storm forecasted to hit the region beginning early Friday afternoon. Out of precaution for the safety of students and staff, Renton School District is changing its school schedule for tomorrow, Friday, Feb. 8:

• ALL SCHOOLS START TIME REMAINS THE SAME FOR DELAYED-START FRIDAY

(ALL SCHOOLS START 90 MINUTES LATE)

• EARLY DISMISSAL FOR ALL SCHOOLS

• No Meadow Crest Preschool

• No out of district transportation

• No afternoon Right-At-School program

• All After-School Athletics/Activities (home and away) cancelled

• All schools and district buildings will be closed to the public after 4 p.m. Friday, through the weekend till Monday, Feb. 11

This decision will give families time to work out childcare considerations for an early release, while allowing schools and the district time to implement the logistics involved in an early dismissal in a safe and orderly way.
