Snow day reminder

Do you think we will have a snow day tomorrow? How about a delay? It seems even the meteorologists aren’t quite sure yet how much snow we will be getting in our neck of the woods.

Since there is the possibility of enough snow to cause some type closure, make sure you are signed up to receive instant alert messages from Superintendent Mr. Theoharides. To learn how to set this up, or to check where you have signed up to receive these alerts visit this page on the school’s website.

Also- refresh yourself with the policy for school closings and where else you may find the information. Mr. Theoharides put out a letter on the schools website identifying the several ways you can find out whether there is a delay or cancellation of school throughout the season. Click here to read the letter.

Along with the areas noted by Mr. Theoharides, remember to check our Facebook page also as we will post the information as well. Have a great Sunday evening!
