Welcome to the Cle Elum-Roslyn School District
The Cle Elum-Roslyn School District is a welcoming and respectful environment, filled with caring and compassionate people, resulting in social and academic excellence.
With winter weather conditions upon us, we want to remind parents that late-start, or school closure, announcements will be made starting no later than 6:45 am. Weather conditions sometimes change rapidly during the early morning hours especially toward sunrise and we try to predict, based on what we are seeing and what the weather forecast tells us, which choice of an altered school schedule is most appropriate. On occasion, there may be a 1 hour delay that is changed to a 2-hour delay or a delay that is changed to a closure. Please keep in mind that the Cle Elum-Roslyn School District encompasses a large area and while weather may be decent at your house, it could be worse in other areas within our boundaries. Announcements are sent out to each family via our K12 Alert system and are posted on the District's website. Additionally, alerts are sent to local media such as KXLE 95.3 and KIMA TV in Yakima and we attempt to get our school notification on the Seattle TV stations - KOMO, KING and KIRO.
If NO announcement of an altered school schedule is sent out, then school will start at the regular start times.

10 Facts About School Attendance
- Absenteeism in the first month of school can predict poor attendance throughout the school year. Half the students who miss 2-4 days in September go on to miss nearly a month of school. Read more
- An estimated 5 million to 7.5 million U.S. students miss nearly a month of school each year. Read more
- Absenteeism and its ill effects start early. One in 10 kindergarten and first grade students are chronically absent. Read more. Poor attendance can influence whether children read proficiently by the end of third grade or be held back. Read more
- By 6th grade, chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school. Read more
- Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence. Read more
- The academic impact of missing that much school is the same whether the absences are excused or unexcused. Suspensions also add to lost time in the classroom.
- Low-income students are four times more likely to be chronically absent than others often for reasons beyond their control, such as unstable housing, unreliable transportation and a lack of access to health care. Read more
- When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduating. Read more
- Attendance improves when schools engage students and parents in positive ways and when schools provide mentors for chronically absent students. Read more
- Most school districts and states don’t look at all the right data to improve school attendance. They track how many students show up every day and how many are skipping school without an excuse, but not how many are missing so many days in excused and unexcused absence that they are headed off track academically.
