Foggy Day Procedures
The foggy season will soon be here. When we make the decision that it is too foggy for safety, the buses and opening of all schools in the Lakeside Union School District will be delayed for two hours. If a delay is necessary, it will be announced on local television and radio stations, and on the Internet.
- TV Channels - 17, 23 & 29
- Internet - http://alertline.kern.org
During such delays, it will be necessary to change the schedule for the opening of each school. Parents should discuss this situation with their children and make arrangements for supervision. There will be no breakfast served if there is a fog delay. If a minimum day is scheduled, the minimum day will be canceled.
Student arrival and dismissal times:
Arrival: All Students should be at their bus stop two hours later than the normal pickup time. Children should not arrive at school before 10:00am for 1st-6th grades and 10:45am for Kindergarten and 7th and 8th grades. There is no supervision before this time.
Dismissal will be on a regular schedule.
All classes begin at 10:15am. Children should not arrive before 10:00am.
There is no supervision before this time.
Dismissal will be on a regular schedule
If conditions remain so severe that it is deemed unsafe to implement the delay schedule, all transportation will be canceled and a school closure will be announced. Therefore, it is important to stay tuned to your radio or television station, and/or check the website often for the information.
We ask for your cooperation and support of this policy. It is very difficult to predict and make provisions for the foggy weather that occurs in the San Joaquin Valley. Our interest is to provide a safe situation for all students and to minimize disruption to the educational process.
