School Closure Information

The Windham School District will be implementing virtual learning days in place of delays and/or cancellations due to inclement weather (or any other reason schools may be closed). The Superintendent will make the decision to revert to a virtual learning day and communicate to all parents via SchoolMessenger, social media (Facebook and Twitter), and local new stations once the decision is made. 

 

All students are required to attend a virtual learning day unless they are sick or unable to attend school for the day.  In that case, you will need to report your student absent through your school’s absentee line. If your child is not available for attendance, they will be marked as absent.  In order for the district to receive credit for the day by the state, 80% or more of our student population will need to be accounted for.  If we do not meet this requirement, the day will be added at the end of the school year.  Below are additional details on what a virtual learning day will look like for each grade level. 

  • K-2 Full Remote Only Students will continue with their regular daily learning remotely via live zoom sessions as they already do.
  • Pre-K-2 In-Person Students will be provided with virtual learning packets to receive credit for the school day.
  • 3-12 Students will be reminded to bring home their 1:1 device and will continue their regular daily schedule remotely via live zoom sessions. 

For more information, please access our Virtual Learning Day FAQ doc. 

As snow conditions create a busy time for all community officials, phone calls inquiring about school cancellation or delay should not be placed to the local police or fire departments. For the convenience of Windham residents and students, school cancellations are made via the SchoolMessenger system.  Outside of the school messaging system, the following outlets will be utilized to communicate to parents about any school closures, delays, or early dismissals:
