Severe Weather/MPCSD Superintendent Message

April 15, 2024

MPCSD Superintendent John Henriksen:  The National Weather Service is predicting several rounds of strong thunderstorms over the next couple of days. The timing of these storms is as follows:

Round 1: Tuesday 2:00am – 8:00am

Round 2: Tuesday 2:00pm – 9:00pm

Round 3: Wednesday 4:00am – 10:00pm

Henriksen met with building principals this afternoon to review safety protocols for severe weather and the district is prepared to “shelter in place”, if necessary, until the several weather threat has passed.  If severe weather hits at school dismissal time, “we ask that you wait until the threat has passed before picking up your student/s.”  It is possible that school staff may have to shelter, and will be unable to allow access to the building or answer phone calls.

Based on the predicted timing of the storms, the school bus schedule could be affected.  If transportation delays are necessary, changes will be communicated through MPCSD Social Media accounts, Infinite Campus Messenger, and KILJ Radio.
