We are committed to providing families with accurate and prompt information in the event of inclement-weather and other urgent matters impacting our schools and community. The District uses the following methods of communication to relay urgent information to District families and the broader community.

District Website 
Whenever possible, the District website will be used to communicate information regarding urgent and emergency situations, including inclement weather and school closures. Check the home page at www.hsd.k12.or.us for announcements and updates.

Flash Alert Emergency Notification System 
The Hillsboro School District uses an Internet-based service for weather-related school closure information and to relay important information to the public in the event of an emergency. The public can sign-up for Flash Alerts to receive emergency alert messages through email and/or cell phone texts. Click on the link to be directed to the site for Hillsboro School District messages.

School Announcements
Alternate methods of communication, such as phone calls, broadcast phone messages, and/or letters may be used in the event of individual school situations. Please check with your child's school for information on procedures. It is essential that you provide reliable emergency contact information to your child's school to ensure you or an authorized designee can be reached quickly in the event of an emergency. In case of inclement weather, announcements will be made indicating which zones will require alternate or snow routes for bus transportation.

Inclement Weather Route Information

If inclement weather should occur, the District will determine which “Inclement Weather Zones” will be activated to accommodate the existing weather condition.  These zones can be used for snow, ice, wind, flooding, etc.   Your Inclement Weather Zone is listed above. 

If you live in the higher elevations of the District, you may be required to bring your student(s) down to a “Snow Stop,” as listed on your student’s route (which is posted on the District’s Website, at www.hsd.k12.or.us ).

If you live in the lower elevations, your “Snow Route” will be your regular route stop and time.

Explanation of Inclement Weather – Snow routes:

  1. If Inclement Weather zones are activated, snow routes will be activated for AM and PM, even if the weather improves for the afternoon routes. 
  2. AM and PM kindergarten students will be in session.
  3. If Inclement Weather zones are activated on Wednesdays, all routes are run on normal Academic Seminar pick up and drop off times.
  4. Activity routes will be run as scheduled, unless otherwise announced.

Explanation of 2-hour late start time:

  1. If announced on a Wednesday, all Academic Seminar schedules (AM and PM) will be cancelled.
  2. This means that buses will run on regular schedule +/- the change for weather.  Example: normal pick-up time is 7:00, under the late start the pick-up time would be 9:00, even if it is Wednesday.
  3. There will be no AM Kindergarten.   PM Kindergarten will run on a normal schedule.

Información de las Rutas en Caso de Inclemencias del Tiempo

Si se presenta inclemencias del estado del tiempo, el Distrito determinará cuales “Zonas de Inclemencias del Tiempo” serán activadas para acomodar las condiciones climáticas existentes. Estas zonas se usan en caso de nevadas, heladas, viento, inundaciones, etc. Su “Zona de Inclemencias del Tiempo”, está listada arriba.

Si vive en las elevaciones más altas del Distrito, será necesario que traiga a su estudiante(s) a una zona de “Snow Stop” (paradero en caso de nieve) como está listado en la ruta de su estudiante (se encuentra en el sitio web del Distrito, en: www.hsd.k12.or.us ).

Si vive en elevaciones más bajas, su “Snow Route” (ruta en caso de nieve), será su parada regular del autobús, a la hora acostumbrada.

Explicación de las Inclemencias del Tiempo – Rutas en Caso de Nieve:

  1. Si se activan las Zonas de Inclemencias del Tiempo, las rutas en caso de nieve serán activadas para la mañana AM y la tarde PM, aunque el estado del tiempo se haya mejorado para las rutas de la tarde.
  2. Los estudiantes de kínder AM y PM tendrán clases.
  3. Si un miércoles se activan las Zonas de Inclemencias del Tiempo, todas las rutas seguirán el horario normal del Seminario Académico para recoger y entregar a los estudiantes.

Explicación del inicio de clases 2 horas tarde:

  1. Si se anuncia un miércoles, todos los horarios (AM y PM) del Seminario Académico serán cancelados.
  2. Esto significa que los autobuses funcionarán en horario regular, de acuerdo con el cambio del clima.  Por ejemplo: El horario normal para recoger a los estudiantes es a las 7:00, pero con el inicio tarde, sería a las 9:00, aún los miércoles.
  3. No habrá kínder AM. El kínder PM seguirá su horario normal.
