2-Hour Delayed Start Schedule 2019-20

Charleston CUSD #1 may run a delayed start schedule for all schools on severe weather days.  The delayed start schedule provides the flexibility to begin school two hours later than normal, allowing time for roads to be cleared and temperatures to rise.  This alternative eliminates a situation where severe weather in the early morning leads to a decision to close schools for an entire day when it is not warranted.  This can be everything from road conditions to freezing temperatures possibly even combined with the early morning darkness which makes traveling by school bus challenging.  Please click here for additional information and to see the 2 hour delayed start schedule.
