Q: Can you remind me of School Weather Policy?
A: We are watching the weather very closely. We follow Montgomery County for the first day of a storm event. If the building loses power, there might be no way to notify you of delays. Also, if there is snow on the ground, we will have to delay opening or have a full closure, depending how quickly the county can clear our parking lot.
If we have access to communication modes and we are able to open the school, we maintain our discretionary decision making and will notify you about changes to the regular schedule via email, recorded message on the school’s weather-emergency line and on our mailing list serve.
We will make our announcement as soon as we know.
