In the event of stormy weather, school cancellations/delays will be announced by text, social media and on the television and radio stations. In addition, you may also see the cancellations/delays broadcast on TV (Channels 4, 5, & 7) and on the local radio stations. If there is a NO SCHOOL DAY OR A DELAY announcement for the Worcester Public Schools, this applies to our school as well.
Before School Program:
If your child is currently registered for the Before or After School program you may bring him/her to the school at these times:
One Hour Delay – 8:30 am, school drop-off begins at 9:35, school begins at 10
Two Hour Delay – 9:30 am, school drop-off begins at 10:35, school begins at 11
Please read carefully. Usually our school is not effected by early dismissal as our school is on the last bus tier and by the time the buses arrive it is 3:00 pm anyway. However, in the past they started dismissing before the snow even started. Therefore, an “early dismissal” announcement on the radio stations means that you should plan for your child’s early arrival at home. We will no longer be able to hold the buses here until 3:10 pm. THIS POLICY EFFECTS BUS CHILDREN ONLY. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE UPDATED ALL OF YOUR INFORMATION: ADDRESS, PHONE NUMBER, CONTACT INFORMATION, ETC. ON THE FAMILY PORTAL.
If at any time during wintry weather you wish to pick up your child/children early please feel free to do so by coming directly to the Main Office. From there we will call your child/children for dismissal. You do not need to call the school prior to picking up your child on days of severe weather.
After School Program:
When it is snowing during the school day, or if snow is forecast for afternoon or evening, the After School Program MAY be canceled or closed early. We will make that call during the day. We ask that parents pick up children before 5:15 pm when there are dangerous weather conditions. The After School phone number is 508.753.5089.
