Rainy Day Plan

Hickman Elementary has a comprehensive plan for days with inclement weather (i.e., rain, hail, high winds, extreme cold or extreme heat). This plan is in place before, during and after school as needed.

We use a flag system along with our public address system to alert students, staff and parents we are activating an inclement weather plan. Staff members posted at key school locations help communicate the plan.

Before School

Students in the breakfast program can arrive to school as early as 7:30 a.m. Staff members will supervise students in the auditorium as usual.

All other students should assemble in the auditorium at 7:45 a.m. A teacher supervisor will dismiss students to walk to their classrooms at the 7:58 a.m. bell.

Morning Recess

During inclement weather, students spend morning recess in their classroom or a buddy classroom. Students will be able to eat their snack, get a drink of water or use the restroom at this time.

After School

We switch to a modified lunch schedule during inclement weather. Lunch will be 30 minutes with no outside play. Depending on weather conditions, students will eat in the auditorium or under the lunch arbor with jackets before returning to their classroom.
