It is that time of year again. Where the temperature drops, rain turns into ice and those puffs of clouds open for our snow. Like yesterday,12/05/2007 we started our day at nearly 50 degrees, by afternoon our temperatures rapidly began dropping bringing in rain, snow, ice mix. This morning 12/06/2007 our wind chill is 18 degrees 25 degrees below what we were yesterday. Buses seem to be running this morning and there are no delays and/or cancellations.
Please check your child's backpack/book-bag for the Inclement Weather Forms that have already been disbursed and will continue to be throughout several schools in the upcoming weeks. Throughout the year there will be times that school will have to be dismissed early due to inclement weather such as snow, ice and/or flooding. This time of year becomes very hectic in the school's office with telephone calls and parent- pick -ups. By filling out the form this will help the office, your child's teacher and the school as a whole. The form will provide the necessary information so that everyone will know what plan of transportation will apply to your child in case of early/emergency dismissal. If your child's form is not completed and returned to the school your child will be transported home on unscheduled dismissals in the exact fashion that he/she has been arriving/dismissing each normal school day.
By completing the form you will have 3 options as follows :
- Ride the bus home as usual
- Go home with another student ( listing the student's name, address, bus number or parent pick-up information)
- Come out to parent- pick up. In the case of early dismissal and parent pick- up you will not need to sign your child out early. Just make the loop as if it were any other day.
To check on delays, dismissals and/or school closings please tune into :

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year !
