Inclement Weather Reminder
As we start to experience more and more inclement weather, it is important that we share a common understanding of the procedures for handling changes in the school schedule. If severe weather makes it necessary to change the school schedule, the superintendent will announce late arrival, early dismissal, or closure of the district through major media outlets, as well as at www.schoolreport.org. This website will always contain the most up-to-date information. Unless there is a listing for Seattle Public Schools at schoolreport.org, all schools and programs are operating on a normal schedule. If the decision is made to close schools for the day, an announcement will be made by 6:00 AM.
In past years Kindergarten families have experienced confusion when the radio and or/the school district website, reports that “Kindergarten” classes are cancelled. This is referring to only half-day Kindergarten programs where district transportation is provided. Our Kindergarten program is full day and follows the general John Hay schedule.
