Winter Weather Protocol
Winter Weather Announcements
In the event our school is closed, we will send a text alert message to all school families who have completed the text alert process in Sycamore.
One of the following announcements will be made:
- All Catholic elementary schools in Jefferson Co. are OPEN.
- All Catholic elementary schools in Jefferson Co. will be OPEN, but on a DELAYED SCHEDULE: The school building will be open at 9:00am. Classes will begin at 10:00am and end at 2:45pm.
- All Catholic elementary schools in Jefferson Co. are CLOSED.
Once we are in school, students will not be dismissed unless a parent or guardian is notified. Please do not call the school seeking early dismissal information. In the event school is dismissed early due to weather or other circumstances, parents will be notified during the day via Sycamore Text Alert system. On these specific days, all activities for that day (sports or academic practices) will be cancelled.
Snow Make Up Days
There are two snow make up days on our school calendar. They are Monday, February 20, 2017, and Monday, April 17, 2017. Per the policy, we will use those days to make up for missed school prior to going to online school days. Please do not do the online snow day work unless we have informed you to do so. You will be notified by Sycamore Text Alert if the Catholic schools have a snow day or delayed start. Please also check the news if you are unsure.
Snow Day Online Learning
As mentioned above, we will make up the first two snow days before we begin online school days. Therefore, on the 3rd day that school is missed, we will institute our Snow Day Online Learning. In order to be counted as present, you, or your child, will need to email the homeroom teacher by 10:00 a.m. that same day. The teachers will be available by email from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. for any questions your child may have about the assignments. In case you have difficulty accessing the work because of email issues or for any other reason, the students will have three days to turn in their work upon return to school.
