School Closures

  • Rogers Public Schools may delay opening schools, close schools early or cancel school for an entire day for hazardous weather or other emergencies. 

    If schools will open late or close for the day, we will post the cancellation on the district web site and notify local television and radio stations by 6 a.m. or as soon as possible. We will also inform families through the ParentLink notification system and by posting updates on our official social media sites - Facebook (@rogersschools), Instagram (@rogersschools), and Twitter (@rogersschools).

    Before deciding to delay or cancel school, we drive the roads in the very early morning hours, consider the weather forecast and consult with others to help assess the situation. Keeping students safe is always our primary concern during inclement weather.

    If schools are to be closed early, we will notify local TV and radio stations as soon as possible. We urge working families to make a plan with their children about where they should go if school dismisses early and no one will be home.
