School Closures

Snow days are rare at CAL.  Because of the vast difference in location of the home high schools, weather may vary. If the student’s home high school declares a two-hour delay, early release, or no school due to weather conditions, the student is not expected to attend CAL. However, all students are expected to attend CAL unless their specific home high school is affected.  For example, while Reynolds may declare no school, the other school districts may not.  All students from the unaffected school districts will be expected to attend school as usual.

The only exception is when the Gresham-Barlow District declares a two-hour delay, early release, or no school.  The Center for Advanced Learning, being within the Gresham-Barlow School District, will act accordingly.

IMPORTANT NOTE If bad weather delays the start of school on an already scheduled LATE START Wednesday, classes will begin at 9:45am at CAL.

Receive emergency school closure information via e-mail

Parents and community members can sign up for notification of any emergency school closures (such as a snow day) by email. There is no cost for this service.  It does have a test function when you register to confirm that the message will get past your computer’s spam filters.  To register for this notification, log on to the following website www.flashalert.net

Once snow routes are called in in the morning, they will remain snow routes in the afternoon, this holds true even if weather and road conditions improve.
