These procedures would also apply to all special education transportation. Dismissal waves will begin at 3:10 p.m.
Not all early closings are as obvious to parents as those caused by inclement weather. A power failure or a heating/plumbing system failure could force a school to shut down. While radio announcements would be made, there is a good chance that many parents would not be aware that the children are being sent home early.
The purpose of early dismissals is to get people home and close the building. We therefore cannot hold the children at school or have buses bringing them back to us.
We urge all families/neighborhoods to develop a contingency plan so that youngsters will know what to do in this situation. Periodically review this plan with your children to be sure they remember all of the steps to follow. Please note: If the plan involves your children going to a house other than where they are normally dropped off, it should not require a bus change.
