Two Hour Delay Procedure

For the first time in years, Benson Village School will have a two-hour delay option in the event of dangerous winter weather or other emergencies.  The decision to delay the opening of a school is made as soon as possible by the Superintendent of Addison Rutland Supervisory Union.

Once a decision has been made, an announcement will be provided via a PowerSchool phone broadcast within the Addison Rutland Supervisory Union region by 6:30 am.  School closings and delayed openings are also posted on the BVS Facebook Page.

In the case of a delayed opening, the start of school will be two hours later than the usual time.

Two-hour delay:

  • School opens at 9:45 am.  A light breakfast will be available.  The school day will begin at 10:00 am.
  • If the delay happens on a Tuesday, Thursday or Friday, there will be no morning Preschool.  If the delay happens on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday, preschool sessions would begin at the regularly scheduled time of 11:30 am.  
  • All buses will run two hours later than normal.  (For example:  If your bus time is 7:10 am, and it is a two-hour delay, your bus time would be 9:10 am.)
  • A delayed opening has no effect on dismissal time unless announced.

The purpose of Benson Village School is to provide a safe educational setting and quality educational services. Programs will be designed to support each student’s needs in order to assist them in reaching their full potential academically, socially, and emotionally. The teachers strive to build upon each student’s natural curiosity to become a self-motivated, life-long learner, who will be a contributing member of society.

Wellness Policy:  Benson Village School has a Wellness Policy that includes Physical Education, Physical Activity, and School Nutrition.  The full policy may be viewed on our web site by selecting policies from the school board drop down menu at the top of the page, or a hard copy can be obtained or viewed at the school.  We invite parents and community members to give input any time on this policy.  Contact the school for more details if you are interested.
