Inclement Weather Schedule

The decision to implement an abbreviated day schedule requires coordinated efforts in several areas. State, county, and city street departments, as well as Snow Watch Volunteers are contacted for reports on road conditions. APS Police and Student Transportation Services will also provide reports on road conditions and the ability of school buses to transport students safely to and from school.

All of this information goes into the final decision to implement an inclement weather day schedule for the Albuquerque Public School - abbreviated schedule, early dismissal, or cancellation of school.

This decision is not by the Double Eagle administrator, but by the district and it affects the entire district EXCEPT for the East Mountain schools. Double Eagle is NOT AN EAST MOUNTAIN SCHOOL

ABBREVIATED DAY

The abbreviated day schedule is a shortened school day that begins TWO HOURS LATER than the regular schedule but ends at the regular time. This means first bell at 9:48 a.m. and late bell at 9:53 a.m.

The most common use of the abbreviated day schedule occurs when severe weather causes street conditions that would endanger the safety of students to school and school employees to work.

The decision to institute an abbreviated schedule will be made and announced through the news media no later than 5:30 a.m. A “Parent Message” from the District office is also sent as well as the Double Eagle website being updated with the information

CANCELLATION OF SCHOOL

Following the decision to implement an abbreviated schedule, weather conditions occasionally worsen to the point that makes it necessary to close the schools. This announcement will be made no later than 8:00 a.m. All students, parents and employees are encouraged to listen to the radio or watch television for announcements concerning changes in the school schedule.

EARLY DISMISSAL

If severe weather conditions materialize during the school day that would necessitate an early dismissal of students, we would contact School Police who will then contact a district administrator with a recommendation and feasible plan. If a decision is made on a district wide basis to dismiss early: KANW (89.1 FM), commercial radio stations, and e-mail will be utilized to provide instruction and direction.
