If there is a storm, the decision to close the school is made between 5:15 a.m. and 5:45 a.m. of that same day. The decision takes into account a verification of weather and road conditions and is made in conjunction with the other private schools in the area.

Once the decision is made, the chain of communication is triggered in order to reach parents, students and employees. The following is a list of places where you can find information about school closures:
