The Council Bluffs Community School District is introducing a 2-hour late start and a 2-hour early dismissal option for inclement weather for the 2019-20 school year. These options will be considered based on the timing and severity of the winter weather and the impact on wind chills and road conditions.

2- Hour Early Dismissal Times:
