Incline High School
School Closure Policy Explanation for Snow Days
Our school is piloting a new Snow Day policy this year. Snow Days will no longer count against our attendance and will be treated like alternative learning days, meaning that we do not have to make up the days at the end of the year or add minutes to our bell schedule like we did last year.
This means that students are expected to complete work when we have a Snow Day. The rotation schedule stays the same (A/B day) and teachers are either pushing out work online or assigning Snow Day assignments ahead of time. For example, if the Snow Day falls on an A day, students are expected to complete work for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th periods. They have up to 5 school days to turn in work and teacher late work policies will still be in effect.
IF a student DOES NOT complete the assigned work, they will be marked absent for that class on the Snow Day.
Three attendance codes will be used for Snow Days:
- TEP (Temporary Educational Placement) – all students will start with this code
- AUK (Unverified) – IF work not submitted within 5 school days
- NCU (No call, unexcused) – if work is submitted LATE
School Closure Policy
In the event of a school closure for any reason students and teachers will not report to school. If there is any question as to whether school will be open or not, parents, students, and teachers should call the snow line at 337-7509.
Teachers must create an assignment for students in lieu of attending school during a closure. The assignment must be commensurate with the content that would have been covered during class for the duration of the closure. Students will have up to five (5) school days to complete the assignment(s) for each day of closure. The length of time will be up to each teacher’s discretion.
Attendance will be coded TEP (temporary educational placement) for a school closure. However, if a student fails to turn in the assigned work for the day(s) of closure, his/her attendance will be changed to an unexcused absence for each day the assigned work was not turned in.
The A/B rotation will not change. If school is closed for an A day, the next day will be a B day.
