school department wishes parents to know that many times during the
course of the winter the decision to call off school due to inclement
weather is difficult at best. Not only must the safety of the children
be considered, but also the necessity of conducting school for a total
of 180 days, and still dismissing for the summer, prior to July 1.
Please be aware that we will not have school if we believe you child’s
health and safety will be jeopardized.
