School Delays & Closings

The Cancellation Dilemma

The decision to hold or cancel school on a day of inclement weather is always a difficult one.  When we cancel school on a winter snow day, it means our students rejoice but parents may have childcare issues and, ultimately, we have to add another day of school onto our June calendar.  If we hold school on a difficult weather day, that may cause some students to miss school or to slip on snow and ice and get hurt on their way to or from school.

Weather prediction is an uncertain science when you live in New England.  However, getting snow in winter is almost guaranteed.  Since we will let the safety of our children guide our decision-making with regard to snow days, we ask all parents to make emergency alternative childcare arrangements should the day come when the children have no school or school is delayed.
