Closing & Delay Information
The decision to pivot to remote learning or delay the start of school due to inclement weather involves many factors that must be considered. The following information may help you understand this process.
Parents are asked to have a plan in place in case of an early dismissal. Parents should give students clear instructions on where to go if their bus drops them off earlier than usual. Also, be sure your child and the school have been given all current home, work, and mobile numbers if they need to contact you. Please review any emergency weather plans with your child if severe weather is in the forecast.
