During the severe weather season, Independence USD 446 school officials advise local and area radio and television stations when weather and road conditions justify the cancellation or early dismissal of classes.  

In the mornings, a decision regarding cancellation is made by approximately 6:00 a.m. so that radio and television stations can broadcast the closing.  An announcement regarding an early dismissal during severe weather will be made as soon as the decision is made.
