Welcome to IHS!

School Delays & Closures Information

With the arrival of winter weather, we would like to remind parents/families about our district policy. If school is delayed or closed, the information is posted by 6:00 AM on:

  • District Website
  • District Facebook page
  • Mobile App
  • Automated calling system
  • Regional media outlets (newspaper online, radio, tv stations)

The location with the most accurate information to confirm a delay/closure is the district website. On occasion, media inaccurately reports school delay/closure information. If schools must close early, notification is given using the same method.

If no notice is posted, school is running on regular schedule. If you have questions about the policy, please call the District Office or your child’s school.

Snow Day Update

      When the Morrow County School District established its 2016-17 school year calendar, administrators built in extra days to allow for potential snow days. Due to extreme inclement weather conditions this winter, schools in Boardman and Irrigon have been closed for 7 days and Heppner schools were closed for 5 days. To compensate for this lost instructional time for students, the MCSD will now be implementing the following adjustments to the 2016-17 calendar: Boardman and Irrigon Schools:
• Boardman and Irrigon schools will make up four of the missed student contact days due to inclement weather closures.
• April 7, 14, 28, and May 12 are now designated as “Snow/Inclement Weather” make-up days for Boardman and Irrigon Schools.
• In the event of another snow day; the dates listed above will not change.
