School Closings

Every effort is made to hold classes on scheduled school days in the Kearney School District. Sometimes, however, weather conditions do not allow for the safe transportation of students to or from school. Therefore, the district makes every effort to cancel school in a timely manner during inclement weather and inform both parents and patrons. Mother Nature does not always cooperate in this decision-making process. Listed to the right are the primary outlets that can be consulted to verify if classes have been cancelled in the Kearney School District.
