School Closings/Delayed Openings
Inclement weather may necessitate a delay in the start of school, an early dismissal from school, or a cancellation of school. We will normally announce cancellation notices prior to 7:00 a.m. Parents should listen to any of the local radio or television stations. We will also be utilizing our School Messenger emergency alert system. In the event of an early dismissal, things become very hectic in the main office as the safety of our students is our number one priority. Please do not call the school to request that students stay at school to await your arrival. Unless there is an extreme emergency situation, we will send students home on their regularly scheduled buses.
