New Two-Hour Late Starts

First, we have changed late-starts this year to two hours. That means that if a late start is called, your bus will arrive two hours later for pickup and school will begin two hours later than the regular start time. School late start times are listed on the district website at http://www.battlegroundps.org/home/hours.  Laurin Middle School late start hours will be 10:15 am.

Weather Information Guide & 5:30 a.m. Phone Calls

A flyer is attached to this email that contains details about weather-related closures and late start notification. In case of a school closure or late start, we begin calling families about 5:30 a.m. Please update your child's contact information on Skyward or with your school so that we can notify you in the event of a change in the school schedule due to inclement weather. Additional weather information is on the district website.
