Weather Alert Information

news story snow emergency

While an unexpected early dismissal from school will be a last resort, we want you to be aware of our procedures in advance. Reasons to cancel or delay any or all Madeira City School facilities would most likely be related to inclement weather conditions. Other conditions such as loss of electrical power or water, damage due to a storm, or other emergency circumstances could also require us to adjust school hours. 

In the event of inclement weather, schools may be either canceled or placed on a 2-hour delay. We try to make our determination by 6:00 AM, and will notify our families using the following procedures:

  • Our automated phone system will contact your home phone number and parent mobile phone numbers that you have provided to be used in case of an emergency.
  • Radio and television stations will be notified.
  • An email will be sent to all addresses subscribed to each individual school listserv. To subscribe to a listserve, please see Listserv information on each school’s page of our website.
  • A message will be sent out through our district social media outlets.
  • If possible, bus transportation will be provided. Please note that students will only be permitted to ride their assigned bus. If bus transportation cannot be provided, students will be kept at school until a parent can pick up their student.
  • In the event of inclement weather arriving after the start of the school day, students in elementary and middle school will not be released except upon direct contact with the parent or person(s) listed on the student’s emergency card.

If a 2-hour delay is in effect, buses will pick up students at their regularly scheduled stops 2 hours later than their usual time (with the exception of P.M. Kindergarten). All Private/Parochial transportation will also be delayed.

School 2-hour delay starting times will be as follows:

Champions Before School Programs..................................9:00 AM
Madeira High School (Grades 9-12).....................................9:35 AM
Madeira Middle School (Grades 5-8).................................10:00 AM
Madeira Elementary School (Grades PreK-4)....................11:00 AM
               Please note:          
              All Day Kindergarten ...........................11:00 AM - 3:30 PM

              (All A.M. Kindergarten will be required to bring a packed lunch)
              P.M. Kindergarten ...............................1:15 PM - 3:30 PM

These procedures are in place every school year to help keep our students safe whether they ride a bus, walk or ride. If you have any questions please call 985-6070.
