When School Closes Early - We Follow The Emergency Sheet

Safety is always our #1 priority in our school and for our children. This is why we have a protocol to follow when school is closed early and considered and emergency closing Once this decision is made, our school goes into an emergency protocol. We follow the emergency sheets that you have completed at the beginning of the year, to send your children to that emergency address. This means, that all notes that were sent in during the morning will be voided and the emergency sheet goes into action. This is for your child's safety. We will not accept any changes over the phone, after 11:00a.m. and will follow the emergency sheet go home address.


It is very rare that an early emergency closing will happen, but it did last week. If you think that your sheets needs to be updated, please come in and we will be glad to work with you to change your emergency procedures. Our office staff has to follow the protocol and producers that have been established for your child's safety. Thank you all for working with us and for working on behalf of the safety of our children!
