To determine if it's necessary to cancel or delay school, transportation staff and the superintendent drive on roads early in the morning, evaluating conditions throughout the district. The superintendent also reviews information from the National Weather Service. Wind chill is one variable that is considered when evaluating whether or not to cancel or delay school.
If school will be closed or delayed, it will be announced on FOX 17, WOOD TV-8 and WZZM 13 as well as the home page of gpsbulldogs.org. You may also receive text, voice or email closing alerts: Just sign up to receive emergency notices through your Infinite Campus account.
When school is canceled, decisions regarding after-school and evening activities will be announced before 2 p.m.
Buses will pick up students two hours later than normal, and school will begin two hours later than normal.
When school is closed, Treehouse Daycare will remain open unless there is a loss of power or heat, or if the Michigan State Police declares roads impassable. If Treehouse must close, it will be announced by FOX 17, WOOD TV, WZZM and on the home page of gpsbulldogs.org.
In the event of a two-hour delay, there will be no a.m. preschool. If school is closed, both a.m. and p.m. preschool will be canceled.
