SCHOOL CLOSINGS AND DELAYS


In the event that school must be closed or delayed, parents will find out about it in two ways:
1. St. John App (download yours today).
2. Local channel - WRTV
Please be careful in the parking lot on days with ice or snow. We have a plowing contract for the lot, but we rely on volunteers for the sidewalks and ice removal. We recommend you drop off at the west door on days when snow or ice appears to be a problem in the lot.
