If emergency or snow days are required, any in excess of three (3) will be made up as full days in the following sequence: 4/6, 4/5, 4/4, 4/3, 4/2. Any days in excess of these days may require extending the school year. When advisable, a two hour delayed opening will be used rather than an emergency closing. A delayed opening on an early dismissal day will cancel the early dismissal and school will end at the regular time. On delayed opening days, staff is expected at the regular time or as soon after as weather permits.
