School Closures

Any decision to close or open classes with a delay will be broadcast on local television news channels and radio stations starting at 7AM, including weather related closures or delays.

Classroom Emergencies

Classroom staff are certified in CPR/First Aid. If there is an emergency with your child, we will contact you or your emergency contacts in addition to calling any of these necessary resources:

  • Medical Service (9-1-1).
  • Hospital emergency room/clinic.
  • Poison Control.
  • The program Health Consultant, a Registered Nurse (RN).



You must inform us if your child is going to be absent, with the reason and the expected return date. One scheduled vacation, family visit or other planned absence of up to three calendar weeks will be permitted each program year. Families will be expected to participate in alternative services during an extended absence.
