PUSD Press Release - School Activities Canceled Due to Weather - PDF
School Activities Canceled for Thursday, January 19th through Saturday, January 21st.
Payson, AZ, January 18, 2017: Due to the predicted snow storms Thursday through Saturday and the National Weather Service winter storm warning, Payson Unified School District has decided to cancel school field trips, activities and games. The reason for the decision is because of the potential snow accumulation on top of the Rim and over Mt. Ord. Since the various weather reports indicate fairly heavy snow accumulations in these two areas, the District did not want to put anyone at risk for travel.
The events that will be canceled include RCMS Ski Trip, RCMS and PHS Basketball games, PHS STUGO trip, PCS field trip, and the wrestling tournament. Sporting events will be rescheduled for a later date.
The Payson Unified School District has not canceled school on Friday. The determination on school will be made Thursday evening or Friday morning depending upon weather conditions. Parents and students will be notified about any changes in the school schedule utilizing the District’s automated caller. In addition, information will be shared with the local radio stations and on the District’s social media.
