School Closures

There are no weather related announcements at this time.


Weather Closure Guidelines
EWS generally follows Eugene School District 4J’s weather closure decisions. We will always close or have a delayed start if 4J does. However, there are times when we may opt to implement a closure or delay based on the conditions of the hill and our parking lot, even if 4J does not.

On mornings when the weather seems questionable, we will post our school’s status no later than 7:00 am on:

  • This page.
  • The school’s phone message.

If we have a two-hour delay, there will be no early childhood classes, no first grade, nor will there be any school for those grades classes that end at 12:35 pm on that day. On a two-hour delay, school will begin for the remainder of the grades at 10:30 am with main lesson. When conditions warrant a two-hour delay on a Thursday, we will cancel school.

There will be no after school care for early childhood on delayed start days (when kindergarten is cancelled). After school care will be available as usual for grades children who have school on those days.

Eugene 4J School closures and weather policies can be viewed on the 4J website.

Springfield Public School’s weather policies can be viewed on the SPS website.
