2022-2023 Weather Alerts
The Germantown Municipal School District’s Inclement Weather Team will be carefully monitoring weather conditions and forecasts over the next few weeks to identify safety concerns for students and staff. The team will make every effort to inform the Germantown community of school closures and early dismissals with as much advance notice as possible. 
As a preventative measure, plant managers may arrive early to identify slippery areas and apply de-icer or close walkways as needed. In addition, our maintenance crews are prepared to address related issues. With the predicted lower temperatures, we recommend parents use their best judgment when it comes to students that normally walk/bike to school.
MakeUp Days
The Germantown Municipal School District has 8 extra days built in the calendar in the event of inclement weather or other school closures, above and beyond what is required by the state. As of February 3,2023, GMSD still has 5 extra days remaining.
