Inclement Weather

  • School Closings and Delays  

    If we have a weather-related delay, dismissal, or cancellation, we will try to make the decision and call as early as possible to allow you maximum time to make alternate plans for your child.

    Please inform the main office at your child's school when your email, home/cell phone number or address changes so we have up-to-date contact information. This is extremely important in case of emergencies and weather notifications.
