Inclement Weather Schedule for JVPS Schools


The decision to implement an abbreviated day schedule requires the coordinated efforts of Mr. Atencio, Superintendent of Schools and Charlene Marmolejo, Durham Bus Company. They gather information regarding weather and road conditions in order to determine the ability for our school buses to transport students to school safely. 

Mr. Atencio will make the final decision to implement an abbreviated day schedule or cancellation of school.


The abbreviated day schedule is a shortened school day, which begins two hours later than the regular schedule. Bus schedules are also delayed two hours. Notification is usually made by 6:30 a.m. Should the complete cancellation of school benecessary, notification is usually given by 7:30 a.m. Please avoid calling theschool or the district office for this information. It is recommended that families plan for such emergency closures.

If severe weather conditions materialize during the school day,the decision for an “early dismissal” will be made by 11:30 a.m. in order to arrange for school buses to arrive at your schools prior to normal dismissal time. 

ALL PARENTSPlease make sure that your contact information (especially addresses and home/cell phone numbers) have been updated in your child’s school record so that our emergency contact system will be able to reach the correct person in the case of emergencies or attendance calls!  For more information about the
