Severe Weather & Emergencies

While we make every effort to remain open during inclement weather or other natural disasters, this may not always be possible. In the event the school has to be closed due to inclement weather or other emergencies, we will notify the local television and radio stations if we are closing and post it as an alert on our website. In case of severe weather, we expect the parents/guardian to pick-up their child. Any children remaining at the childcare center will be kept indoors as far away from the windows as possible.
