Delays and Closures

  • To ensure student safety, especially with inclement weather, we may delay the start of school (3-hour late start) or close school entirely.


    We will notify all NTPS families and students by 6:00 am. Notification will arrive by phone call, text, and email. NTPS communications will also place delay & closure alerts on our website and local news and radio.

    Not seeing an announcement? School is operating normally.


    Please make sure your current contact information is on file with your school!

How it Works

  • Student safety is the primary consideration in adjusting school hours.

    Inclement Weather

    For inclement weather, district leaders work with our transportation department to determine the safety of the roads. Current and forecasted weather conditions, road surface temperatures, and the feasibility of safe travel can all impact the decision. As we know, the weather can change by the mile and minute. While roads may appear passable for some students and families, circumstances may be quite different in surrounding neighborhoods.
