School Closures & Inclement Weather


HFCS follows the Coeur d’Alene school district for weather-related school closures. You can download the CDA schools app, call their weather hotline at 208-667-0784, check their website, or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. As soon as we know that there is a school closure, we will share it with you on our website, on our Instagram and Facebook pages, and via our AP Notify texting service.  In case of an emergency early closure, the HFCS office will notify parents through AP Notify.  We will not permit students to leave the school until arrangements are made to pick them up.

We will keep students indoors when the weather is below 10 degrees Fahrenheit. We check two different weather sites and average the “feels like” temperatures so that we account for the wind chill. Please make sure that you send cold weather gear with your child(ren) so that, when we can send them outside, they’re able to play and be safe.
