Important Notice Regarding Weather Policy

During inclement weather, an official decision on the status of classes for that evening will be made by 2:00 PM. For Saturdays, decisions will be made either Friday night if possible or early Saturday morning. After that time please visit our website, check our Facebook page, or call KCBS at (816) 931-2299 to find out whether classes will be held or not. KCBS uses the Kansas City, Missouri and Shawnee Mission, Kansas school districts as a guideline for weather cancellations. Please note that though districts may be closed during the day, circumstances may change that allow us to have regularly scheduled classes in the evenings.

In the event of inclement weather that results in closure of Kansas City Missouri Public Schools, classes for the Daytime Program will also be canceled. Updates regarding the Daytime schedule will be posted on our website, Facebook page and via the phone messages. Please note that there are circumstances that may result in Daytime Program classes being canceled but evening classes being held as scheduled and vice versa. The exception to this policy is when schools close due to cold weather not snow or ice. If schools are closed due to temperature but road conditions are not hazardous, classes will be held as scheduled. Please use caution, care and judgment for travel from your particular area.
