8:10am Building Opens for Students
8:35am Tardy Bell / School Begins
3:25pm Dismissal
(12:50pm Early Dismissal)

In the event of inclement weather, school district administration may choose to cancel school or to dismiss classes early.  The decision on whether to cancel school is made before 6:00 a.m. if at all possible. Hopefully, the district will not have to dismiss classes early because the administration realizes the hardships that might be created by doing such.  The exceptions might be dismissing classes early at the High School and Osage Trail Middle School.  If this is done, it is usually to dismiss about 20 minutes earlier than usual and is done so that the busses might make their High School and Osage Trail Middle School routes and then get back for the Fire Prairie Middle School routes.  If the weather forces the closing of school, the information will be announced in the following ways:


  • Announcements will be made on local television and radio stations. 
  • Information will be posted on our website and you can also sign up to receive email alerts. 
  • Sign up to receive Fort Caster text alerts and you won't have to rely on watching the news to hear about school closings.
