Outside/Inside Weather Days
As a followup to the email sent up earlier, if we have an extremely cold or inclement weather day, we will post red flags on the outside of the school. This will indicate that students should come in the main doors and go down to the gym until the morning bell rings. This will occur if the temperature drops below 20 degrees or if we have major storms.
