Inclement Weather Procedures

As winter approaches, it is time to plan ahead for those days when school will be closed for the entire day; starting at a later time in the morning; or dismissed early due to inclement weather. The following information should be helpful to you.

SNOW DAYS - In the event of inclement weather when it is too severe for buses to be on the highways, school will be cancelled for the entire day. This announcement is usually broadcasted as early as 6:00-6:30 AM by the local radio stations. If you have any doubt concerning school closings, you should tune in to either WMPL, WCCYNVOLV or TV 6 News. An email via parent listserv and text messages via remind 101 will be sent with this announcement.

LATE STARTS FOR GRADES K-12 - In recent years, delayed starts have become an alternative to full snow days. On days such as these the storm has usually passed and the county snowplows only need some extra time to clear the roads. Again, such announcements will be broadcast by the local radio stations starting between 6:00 – 6:30 AM. An email will be sent out to the parent listserv. On delayed start days, school will begin at 10:15 AM (MS/HS) & 10:20 AM (Elementary). The bus drivers will begin their routes 2 hours later than usual. You will need to calculate the adjusted time for the bus to arrive at your home on delayed start days by using the information mentioned above.

BREAKFAST IS NOT SERVED ON LATE START DAYS.

EARLY DISMISSAL - On occasion school must be dismissed early in the morning or afternoon due to an approaching storm. In such instances the announcements will be broadcast by the radio stations during short intervals to alert parents. An email will also be sent to the parent listserv. Please be sure that the early dismissal information that you provided to the schools is always accurate.

SCHEDULED SPORTING EVENTS - Please listen to the radio stations regarding scheduled games/contests on days when school is canceled or dismissed early. Coaches will contact players in the event of a change in schedule.

THE GE BULLDOG AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM IS CLOSED 0N SNOWDAYS
AND ANY WEATHER-INDUCED EARLY DISMISSALS.
