Important Notice Regarding weather policy:

During inclement weather, an official decision on the status of classes will be made by 2:00 PM. In the event that we do cancel classes, we will update our website, Facebook page and phone message accordingly. Otherwise, please plan to attend classes as normal.

KCBS uses the Kansas City, Missouri and Shawnee Mission, Kansas school districts as a guideline for weather cancellations. Please note that though districts may be closed during the day, circumstances may change that allow us to have regularly scheduled classes in the evenings.

Please use caution, care and judgment for travel from your particular area.
