Storm and Emergency School Information

Unless there are extreme weather conditions or emergency situations, schools in Moorhead will be in session as scheduled. When Horizon Middle School or the district as a whole is closed or closing, an announcement will be posted on the district’s website at, and it will be announced on local radio and television stations. The district also uses an automated notification system for weather-related announcements and other notifications. Parents are encouraged to log in to PowerSchool to choose how they are notified with this system or to review prior messages sent by the system.

In this situation, parent(s)/guardian(s) may call for their children at school by coming to the office and signing out their children. If there is an immediate danger, such as a tornado or blizzard warning, and students are sheltering at school, we recommend parents refrain from picking up students before the warning expires. Certain emergencies may require moving students to another site. The school has a reunification plan that will be used if needed.

On the student registration form, parent(s)/guardian(s) of rural students are asked to submit the name of an urban Moorhead resident who will provide emergency housing for their child when rural buses are not running due to storm conditions.
For additional information refer to School Board Policy 711 on the school district website or in the school office.
