Since we can’t field all of these questions in a timely fashion, we have great news: you don’t need to wait to hear back from us! We have several helpful resources for you to determine whether or not the school has a delay, closing or early dismal.
1. In the Morning, a Decision Will Be Made and Posted Online By 6 a.m. EST. In the Afternoon, a Decision Will Be Made About Evening Classes and Activities and Posted Online By 2:30 p.m. EST.
