Planning Ahead – School Closing/Delay Information

From record-breaking high temperatures in September, to heavy rains in October, to the anticipation of snow and sleet in mid-November, we are fully expecting anything could be possible when it comes to the weather this school year.

To add to the complexity of what we are anticipating this week, Thursday is Turkey Day and our Food Service staff have been busy preparing a special meal for students, staff, and special guests. Additionally, Friday is a scheduled early dismissal/afternoon kindergarten make-up day.

Not unlike our students, we are closely monitoring the forecast for Thursday and Friday, and we will do our best to communicate any weather-related changes to the school day as soon as possible. Please keep in mind, while not ideal, due to the number of hours already lost this school year, if the weather is bad a two hour delay followed by the planned early dismissal may be necessary on Friday.
