All preschool programs and before- and after-school programs will also be closed. Fees will be credited for days closed due to a walkout. The Brichta and Schumaker centers will be open and will operate normally.
No schools will have makeup days at this point. If the walkout continues long-term, the school year may be extended. District leadership is working through how best to handle an extension if it becomes necessary, and we will keep you informed as soon as we can.
