Emergency Weather Closing Procedures 2020-2021

As with everything else in 2020, school closings for inclement weather will look different this year. Under the Governor’s executive order that allowed schools to meet the minimum 180-day school year requirement by permitting the use of virtual or remote instruction, school districts can apply this same order to days on which remote instruction is necessary due to inclement weather.  

As a result, as we anticipate the upcoming winter weather season, here are our plans for inclement weather days:

Snow Days:  
  • We have two “emergency closing days” built into the 2020-2021 school calendar. 
  • For the first two days when there is a forecast for extreme winter weather (blizzard, nor’easter, ice storm, power outages, etc.), all schools will be closed for “traditional “snow days. 
  • All other inclement weather days during the school year will be Remote Virtual Learning Days. Depending on the weather, it may be a full day of school or a shortened day. 
  • If we must use more than two days for school closings, additional days will be taken away from the April Break
 
 
Delayed Opening: 
  • When inclement weather is forecast to happen during the night or early morning hours, (when we would usually need to call a delayed opening for safe travel),  all classes will operate on a remote schedule.
  • Whenever possible we will alert families and staff the day before a schedule change, in order for everyone to be prepared with supplies and childcare.
 
Early Dismissal:
  • When inclement weather is forecast to begin during the school day, we will plan to hold school remotely. The schedule will be based on the forecast.
