The safety and welfare of all our students require that a parent or guardian call the school office on any day a child is absent. Procedures for reporting student absences are basically the same at all Caledonia Community schools.
If your child is absent from school, please call the school office to explain the reason for the absence. Calls to report student absences should be made as soon as possible during the morning hours, preferably before 9:00 a.m.
If your child will be absent from school for any reason other than illness, call the school office to make arrangements in advance. On any day that your child is absent from school and no call is received to explain the absence, the school will call you.

DETAILS/EXPLANATION OF SCHOOL CLOSURES/DELAYS:
This letter is to provide information to you regarding school closings or delays. Depending on weather conditions or other emergency situation, a decision must be made regarding school closure or delay. Caledonia Community School District will decide on one of the following:
Close school for the day
Students and District employees will stay home and not attend school. Extra-curricular activities for the district will be determined later in the day, in accordance with weather conditions. NOTE: Early Childcare will not be opened at Caledonia Elementary, Dutton, Emmons Lake, Kettle Lake or Paris Ridge for before or after school on closed school days. However, you are always welcome to bring your children to the Early Childcare Center at 330 Johnson on closed days. Early Childcare may close due to inclement weather and will be announced via TV/radio stations along with local school closing information.
Declare a 2-hour shortened day special schedule
* All schedules will begin 2 hours later.
* Regular classes will begin 2 hours later than usual.
* Buses will arrive at the bus stops 2 hours later than usual.
* Dismissal of school in the afternoon will be at the regular time.
Early Childcare Information:
* Early Childcare will open at 6:30 a.m. at 9751 Duncan Lake Road.
* Early Childcare will open at 6:30 a.m. at Emmons Lake, Kettle Lake, and Dutton Elementary.
Middle School and High School Information:

NOTE: In the event of a district-wide early dismissal due to inclement weather, parents are not encouraged to pick up their children from school. Students will not be released before the regular dismissal time unless absolutely necessary due to severe weather conditions.
Dress your children appropriately for the weather. Instruct your children to be especially careful when walking or driving because of the increased danger of slippery roads.
Please Do Not:
Bring your children to school early on the 2-hour shortened day schedule.
Caledonia Community Schools are concerned about the safety of all and unnecessary loss of school time. Decisions to close or not to close school are made very early in the morning, before daylight. Be assured that any decision to close or delay school is carefully considered and made only after evaluating all available up-to-date information and reports. Your cooperation with these plans will be greatly appreciated.
If you have any questions regarding this information, please call your school principal or the Central Administration Office at 616-891-8185.
