In the event of inclement weather or an emergency situation, the Puyallup School District takes every precaution to ensure the safety of students. Arrangements have been made with radio stations, TV
stations, and Internet sites to broadcast emergency information regarding the operation of school.

Inclement Weather Information
The school district will keep the community informed through the Public Schools Emergency Communications System through the following radio stations, TV stations, and Internet sites.
