In the event of an unscheduled early dismissal/closing, parents should be sure their child knows what to do. It is essential that families have a plan in place for those days when the school may need to close early. The Superintendent will activate the Everbridge communication system to inform parents of the unscheduled early dismissal. As in the case of late openings and school closings, announcements will be made on the radio and television.
