School Closure


School closure resulting from adverse weather conditions is announced on many radio stations as well as your local news stations. Also, all district personnel and parents will receive an automated voice message from the district if schools and district offices are closed or if there are late start times for school buildings. Please listen for public service announcements by these stations rather than calling the Administration Building or Vista PEAK. When APS schools are closed, the following stations will be notified:

  • KOSI (101.1 FM)
  • KNUS (710 AM)
  • KRWZ (950 AM)
  • KOA (850 AM)
  • KEPN (1600 AM)
  • KBNO (1280 AM)
  • KHOW (630 AM)

The Superintendent may announce a late start schedule for the opening of schools based on weather or other emergency conditions. In the event of a late start, the following process and procedures should be followed:


  • Will be on a one-hour delayed start time
  • Will report to bus stops one hour later than original pick- up times
  • End of day student bell schedules remain the same during delayed start days
