Closing School Early
When it is necessary to close school early, early
closings typically will be two and one-half hours earlier than the normal ending
time of classes. For example, if your child's school day normally ends
at 2:30 p.m., it would close at noon.
In addition, when
school closes early all after-school activities and childcare services
are cancelled. If your child is transported to an after-school program
and school closes early, you must make arrangements to have your child
picked up at the school building. No alternate transportation
arrangements can be made on short notice.
