Calendar Update for End of School Year

As you know, the storms, power outages, and unsafe road conditions caused schools to close unexpectedly for many days this winter. As a result of these missed days, the school district is required to use our “emergency closure days” which are on your 2022-23 school calendar as June 11, 12, and 13. This last week of school will be short days, with release times the same as
short Wednesdays.

Late Start at all sites but Casterlin on Wednesday March 8

Hello SHUSD families
Due to hazardous road conditions and continued inclement weather, all schools except Casterlin will have another late start tomorrow March 8, 23. Casterlin will remain closed. At this time we plan to run the buses two hours after their regularly scheduled time. If the buses are unable to get through, drivers will contact their riders in the morning. If anything changes, the district will update you as soon as possible.

School Status Update

All Schools except Casterlin are back in session Friday March 3rd. The schools will have a normal start time.
