Inclement Weather Policy

We Follow PPS

For school closures, delays and schedule changes due to inclement weather, we follow the Portland Public School’s (PPS) schedule. (We follow east side if there is a discernment between east and west side.)

PPS Closures and Schedule Changes are Available at:

  • web:
  • radio: KEX 1190 AM or KOPB 91.5 FM
  • television: KATU Channel 2 for listings by 7:00am
  • for PPS text message alerts: simply text @portlandschools to 23559

Check Your Email

Sunstone will send out a whole school email announcement and post a FlashAlert (subscribe below) if school is closed, delayed or otherwise has a schedule change. In the event of inclement weather, please be sure to check your email before you leave your house.

Our greatest concern is for the safety of you and your child. Regardless of our schedule, please feel free to keep your children home if you feel conditions are not safe.

Inclement Weather Guidelines:

  • All programs will follow the same schedule for inclement weather delays.
  • If Portland Public Schools announces an early closing for weather-related reasons, we will also close early. There is NO AFTERCARE for early closing.
  • If Portland Public Schools announces a delayed opening for weather-related reasons, we will also have a delayed opening. There is NO BEFORECARE for delayed openings.
    • e.g., for a two-hour delay – school would begin at 10:30a.m. with drop off from 10:00-10:20a.m.
  • If Portland Public Schools announces a school closure for weather-related reasons, we will also be closed.
