School Closings and Delays
Access School Closure and Delay Information
Each year, the district faces the possibility of school closure or delay in start time due to weather, road conditions or other emergencies. Student safety is of primary concern. Connect to one of the technologies listed below to access district information about delays and closures.

In the event of a delay or closure, a telephone call and an email message will be sent to parents. Please be sure your contact information is up-to-date for your student.
In the event of weather related incidents, district personnel survey roads within the district early in the morning and decide whether students can safely reach school. If a closure or a delay in start time becomes necessary, beginning at 6:00 a.m., announcements will be made. Unless you hear an announcement to the contrary, you should assume that Ferndale School District will operate on schedule.
Should school be delayed in start time on an already scheduled early dismissal day, early dismissal will be canceled and schools will end on their regular schedule which are:
Beach Elementary 2:10PM
Cascadia, Central, Custer, Eagleridge and Skyline Elementaries 3:30PM
Horizon Middle 2:30PM
Vista Middle 2:27PM
Ferndale High 2:16PM
There is no developmental preschool (am or pm) on early release, half days, or delayed start days.
If there is a delay or closure, Ferndale Family Connections will operate under this schedule:
- One-Hour Delay: Classes will begin at 10:00 am. There will be no 9:00 am class.
- Two-Hour Delay: Classes will begin at 11:00 am. There will be no 9:00 am or 10:00 am classes.
- Closure: There will be no classes.
Buses may run behind schedule when fog, ice or snow conditions exist. Parents are urged to see that their children are adequately clothed so that waiting in cold weather will not be too uncomfortable. In the event of starting late on a given day, buses will try to maintain a corresponding schedule. If county officials close roadstop district buses, it will be the responsibility of the parent to provide transportation to school.
Unless a previous notice has been given, the district will not dismiss school early except when a definite safety or health factor is involved.
