  • School Cancelation Process, 2022-2023

    The safety of students, parents, and staff is the foremost consideration when evaluating if school should be canceled. There are several variables in the final decision. They include:

    1. An early morning report from our Director of Facilities and Operations on road conditions in Williamston
    2. Input from law enforcement, the road commission, and staff from neighboring districts
    3. Consultation with Superintendents from other Ingham County Districts

    If the temperature is 20 degrees or more below zero (with or without wind chill), school will be automatically canceled.

    Note that each local district in the area makes its own independent decision to cancel school. Road conditions in Williamston (including roads in all parts of our district) may differ greatly from those in other districts. If you disagree with a decision to open school, it is always your right to keep your child at home. If you make this choice, please contact the appropriate school office so we know where your child is and that they are safe.

    For students attending the Wilson Talent Center (WTC). If Mason Public Schools have canceled school due to road/weather conditions, the Ingham Intermediate Schools are also closed. Consequently, the WTC will be closed. If Williamston is open on a day Mason schools are closed, our WTC students have space available to study at Williamston High School. However, WTC students will only be required to attend class during their usual hours at WHS. Questions regarding this arrangement can be directed to the high school office.

    School cancellations are broadcast on a variety of sources. These include the District website, School Messenger, and local media outlets. Families can subscribe to both School Messenger and the RSS feed on the announcements on the website. That way you will receive an automatic notification to your phone, email, and/or news feed. Our goal is to make a decision to cancel no later than 6:15 am.
