Inclement weather, hazardous road conditions, school facility problems or other emergencies can always cause school delays or closures. The decision to close schools is made by the Superintendent or his authorized representative.
Visit the Woodland Public Schools Snow Route Summary page on kwrl.org for snow route information.
We have added an alert feature to our website. Alerts will show up in a pink bar for urgent news, such as school closures, and a yellow bar for information only (example-changes to game times and schedules). The alert bars will be displayed across the top any page.
Woodland Public Schools has implemented a new telephone notification system that will be used in the event of changes to school schedules, cancellation of school or school emergencies, student absences, low lunch balances, bus schedule changes and similar events. On mornings with school delays, you can expect a telephone call around 7:00 am. If you wish to know of school schedule changes prior to that time, you may wish to listen to the radio or watch the morning news; as those changes will be broadcast there, too. This website will post alerts, also (see above-Alerts). Please make sure your phone number is current by contacting your school secretary.

School closure and delay information also will be given to the following radio and television stations:

The determination to delay the start of, or close schools is made very early in the morning. The target is to make the decision no later than 5:30. Once the decision is made there are six different types of communication set up.

If you have need to receive messages on schedule changes before 6:30, please consider using methods 1-4. If you can not, because of lack of cell phone coverage, television/radio, or internet we will be happy to put you on a special call list that rings phones at about 5:30 am. If you wish to be put on this call list, please send a request to Nicole Galloway, firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 360-841-2703.

If school is dismissed early for any reason, parents of WCC children must pick up their children within 2 hours of dismissal.
