School Day - Dismissal

Every school shall have a policy regarding early dismissal particularly due to inclement weather. Whenever a school desires to dismiss early, for reasons other than an emergency or inclement weather and it is not scheduled in the school calendar, permission must be obtained from the Office of Education.

When early dismissal can be anticipated, the principal shall inform the parents in sufficient time to permit them to provide the necessary arrangements for the care of their children.
