On Groundhog Day, Punxsutawney Phil informed us that he thinks we will have an early spring. While we hope correct, it is important that everyone continues to be prepared in case we have a delayed opening or school closing due to inclement weather.
In the event of a delayed opening, early release, or school closing due to inclement weather or emergency, the following procedures will be followed:
- Our school website will include notification of delayed opening, early dismissal and/or emergency closing.
- A detailed Message will be sent to parents’ emergency numbers. Please keep School Messenger contact information updated.
Saint Leo the Great School has students that reside in multiple public school districts. The public school districts determine whether or not buses will run during inclement weather. Saint Leo’s Administration must consider multiple school district busing schedules when determining whether to have a delayed opening, early release or school closing.
In certain cases of inclement weather, Saint Leo’s will run a delayed opening schedule. On delayed openings, students must not be dropped off at school earlier than the stated time. In the event that a district’s schedule (and therefore, its transportation) does not coincide with Saint Leo’s schedule, it is the responsibility of the parents to make the necessary, realistic efforts for him/her to attend school.
Please remember that the safety of all is our first priority when making these decisions. Thank you in advance for your patience and flexibility.
