Emergency Information

School Delays and Closures

In the event that severe weather develops during the school day, school officials will be in direct contact with Civil Defense authorities. School dismissal will be at the regular time, unless we are all advised otherwise. Parents should be alert to the development of severe weather conditions and should listen to local television and radio stations to determine if there will be an early school dismissal.

Parents- please make a plan of action in advance about what your children are to do in the event of an early school dismissal. Make a back up plan too. You should give the plan to your child’s teacher along with the names and phone numbers of anyone you may designate to assist during an early dismissal.

If weather conditions become severe, due to snow, ice, heat, etc., parents are advised to check any of the following locations for busing information, early dismissals and school closings. Decisions are based on the safety of the students.
