Please listen for public service announcements by these stations rather than calling the Administration Building or Gateway High School. When APS schools are closed, the following stations will be notified:

  • KOSI (101.1 FM)

The Superintendent may announce a late start schedule for the opening of schools based on weather or other emergency conditions. In the event of a late start, the following process and procedures should be followed:


  • Will be on a one-hour delayed start time
  • Will report to bus stops one hour later than original pick- up times
  • End of day student bell schedules remain the same during delayed start days
