Snow Days -vs- Two Hour Delays
If we are going to have a snow day or a two hour delay it has to be called by 6:15 am. If we are on a two hour delay and go to a snow day then it is usually called by 8:15. The fastest way to get the information is to sign up for a text alert or check our district web site. As soon as a decision is made they post it right away. I had a few phone calls so I hope this helps you out. Once again this is just a ball park of the timeline for when they make their decisions.
In the event that we have a two hour delay breakfast will not be served that day.
We will be helping out some Central Elementary families this year during the holidays. If you are interested in helping, please select an ornament off the tree which will be located across from the office. We ask that the presents be returned to the office by December 9th.
