The Archie School District would like to remind parents of some of their winter policies. 

Families will be notified of inclement weather via School Reach, Enews, Facebook, and local news stations.  Be sure your phone numbers and/or emails are up-to-date in the SIS system.

Students will need to bring coats for elementary recess.  They ask that student names be written inside coats, gloves, and hats.

In the event that the school has to dismiss early due to inclement weather, they ask that you have arrangements made for your family.

This will help make any rough spots due to winter weather run smoother for everyone.
