School canceled on Friday, Jan. 20
All District activities canceled, John Stanford Center closed
Seattle Public Schools will remain closed on Friday, Jan. 20 because of continued winter weather conditions. The John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence will also be closed.
“The snow is still falling and temperatures are low, making it difficult to safely transport students to and from school,” said Dr. Susan Enfield, Interim Superintendent. “We hope our students, families and staff members are staying safe and warm, and we look forward to re-opening our schools on Monday.”
Next Tuesday, Jan. 24 is a three-hour early dismissal from schools because of a scheduled furlough day. That day cannot be used as a snow make-up day. District administration will determine tomorrow if Friday, Jan. 27 – a scheduled day off for professional development – can be used as a snow make-up day.
Families will receive an automated phone call about the closure, and can also check for updates on the District website at www.seattleschools.org and via the Public Schools Emergency Communications System at www.SchoolReport.org. We are also posting updates on Twitter @seapubschools.
