With the impending storm predicted for tomorrow, we are planning the early closing of our schools on February 8th. We are announcing this decision at this time to allow you to make plans and to insure the information is communicated clearly. We will follow the usual half day early release schedule and no lunches will be served.
1. The high school and middle school will be dismissed at 11:10 a.m.
2. Dale Street School and Memorial School will be dismissed at 11:40 a.m. There will be no PM Kindergarten/Preschool.
3. Wheelock School will be dismissed at 12:10 p.m.
As detailed above, we are announcing this plan well in advance of the storm. It is important that you continue to monitor the television stations, radio stations or our website in the event that the storm forecast changes and we need to make the decision overnight to cancel school.
