Inclement Weather Procedures
The Central Point School District makes student safety a priority. When inclement weather strikes, our First Student manager, Susan Williamson, and I are in nearly constant communication. She is out on the roads by 5:00 am to determine bus safety. I am also in communication with other valley superintendents to share information about road conditions and weather forecasts. Ultimately, we determine whether or not it is safe to transport students to and from our schools.
In some cases, schools remain open, but buses operate on “snow routes” ( click here to see snow routes). In other cases, conditions seem great in town, but poor enough in rural areas to warrant a delay or closure.
In the event that inclement weather strikes and schools are delayed or closed, this will be the communication protocol:
- District 6 staff will be notified immediately via email.
- The District 6 website and the D6 FaceBook page will be updated within 15 minutes of staff notification.
- All local media (television and radio) will be notified.
First Student has already prepared for winter driving conditions by training all drivers in safe driving procedures for rain, snow, fog and icy road conditions. They will also all attend a refresher course in chaining procedures by 12/5 and all higher elevation routes have buses with automatic drop chains.
Should you have questions or concerns about our inclement weather procedures, please contact me at email@example.com or by phone at 541.494.6201 (office) 541.840.5644 (cell).

Patrick elementary Parents and Students-
For the past three years I have had the privilege of being the principal of both Patrick and Hanby. The job was created after severe budget cuts. As the economy has improved, it was important to our school district to once again bring principals to both buildings. This summer I was chosen to be the principal of Hanby Middle School. As a part of moving to Hanby, I was excited to be passing on the great traditions and community of Patrick to Sara Hanberg this upcoming year. Sara has been the title one teacher for me the past three years and assisted with administrative duties. You will find her to be a wonderful and caring principal. I would have preferred to say goodbye to everyone before school was out but the decision came this summer. I will be visiting the school often. I also will be inheriting Patrick students as they move to the middle school level. I want to thank all of the teachers and students for their dedication and to the families for all of their support. I have had a wonderful three years.
