Emergency Information


Emergencies such as inclement weather, electrical outages, and other circumstances outside the control of the school district sometimes occur resulting in a change to the school day for the safety of students and staff. Farmington Public Schools strives to provide information related to emergencies in the most efficient and effective manner possible. Technology advances now allow the district to communicate important information clearly, efficiently, and effectively to large numbers of community members.

For more detailed information about how delay/cancellation decisions are made, please see the Superintendent’s Message: https://goo.gl/i7z1WC
