Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am sending this correspondence home with your student in case you did not get the test message from our new emergency messaging system yesterday. We are going to have a Two-Hour Delay for our staff tomorrow, Friday November 16th. Because we were previously scheduled to have an Early Release Day for Staff Development, students will be off the entire day. We will not bring students in for an hour and then have to send them home. In addition to this letter, we will also be proceeding with sending an emergency message detailing this change for our students.
The reason for this scheduling change is based on both the current weather forecast and the district hosting the Area All-State Concert tomorrow and Saturday. We are hoping the delay will allow our students and those from surrounding schools to be able to attend the practice and performance without compromising their safety. In the event that the weather prevents other schools from traveling to our district for Friday’s rehearsal activities, the Saturday performance scheduled for 3:00 p.m. will still take place.
I am sorry for the confusion and any inconvenience this may cause, but we are hoping to give you as much notice as possible so you can make arrangements for your children. Thank you for your support, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact my office.
John C. McDonald, Jr., Ed. D.
Superintendent of Schools
