Prepare Each Student To Be Successful

  • The Stevens Point area is not just a beautiful place in which to live, grow, work, and play. It is a destination. The homestead from which to build a career, begin and raise a family, pursue life's dreams, and achieve personal and professional goals. Our District is an integral part of the Stevens Point area family, and we believe that the opportunities we offer, the people who provide them, and our students who take ahold of them will take you and your children - our students - to heights of achievement.

    We realize that any change from the normal school schedule causes family disruption and the option to close or early dismiss school is only made when weather conditions make school closure absolutely necessary. Ahead of weather that may cause us to close school and/or the District due to hazardous weather conditions, I wanted to remind you of our procedures surrounding school closure in a weather situation so that you can be prepared as we move into this winter season.

     

    How is the decision to close school made?

    The transportation manager and superintendent will jointly monitor the weather through the previous day/evening/early morning hours.  By 5:30 a.m., they will determine road conditions and weather impact/outlook. Based on the safety and timing of bus travel and the status of the weather, the superintendent will make the decision to close or not to close schools/district for the day.

     

    Option #1 -Schools Closed: All Stevens Point Area Public Schools are closed for the day. No after-school activities occur on days when schools are closed.

     

    Option #2 - Early Dismissal: Dismissal time is determined based on weather and communicated to families as quickly as possible. If possible the decision will be made no later than 11:30 a.m. No after-school activities occur on early dismissal days. Boys and Girls Club and Great Escape may remain at school based sites.

     

    Options #3 -After-School Activities and Events Cancelled: If school is held, but inclement weather approaches, the decision to cancel after-school events will be made by 2:00 p.m. The decision to cancel after school events/contests scheduled at other non-district sites, locations, other schools, etc., will be made on a case-by-case basis in concert with the hosting school/entity.

     

    How will I be notified if school is closed?

    Once a decision to close, early dismiss or cancel after-school activities and events has been made, parents, staff and the community will be notified through the following communication channels;

    1. District website - www.PointSchools.net
    2. Phone, text and email notification (contact your school to update your contact information)
    3. District and School Social Media Channels
    4. Local media outlets.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the superintendent, 715-345-5444.

     

    Thank you for your support as we prepare for the possibility of emergency school closings.

  • Our District consists of nine Elementary Schools, two Junior High Schools, one Senior High School, and our specialized schools (Point of Discovery School, Charles Fernandez Center, Boston School Forest and Online Learning Center), and an exceptionally strong 4K program. Our students receive a comprehensive K-12 education and achieve at high levels because of a highly talented and dedicated faculty and staff; several unique programs; strong community partnerships; strong leadership at Board and Administrative levels; and a loyal, committed, and supportive community. It is for these reasons, and mostly because of our greatest assets - our students - that Stevens Point is one of Wisconsin's premiere, public school districts.
