  • Inclement Weather Notification

    We are monitoring the weather conditions forecasted for this coming Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday for our area. Based on the current models we do not anticipate any changes to class, schedules or activities, but this is a good time for a reminder to monitor local media to be aware of weather conditions.

    As a further reminder, should inclement weather require changes to our class schedules or activities, we will notify all of our families, faculty, and staff members via IRIS, our emergency notification system.  Additionally, such notifications will be posted to our website and social media platforms.  Please take a few moments today to verify that your contact information in the Blackbaud system is correct.  
     
    Should inclement weather not allow us to come to campus any day next week, classes will continue with remote instruction per the established schedule.  Monday is a Crimson day of class, regardless if we are on campus or remote. 
     
    A friendly reminder tomorrow Friday, February 12 is a 8 period remote day.
