When weather or an emergency causes a change in schedule, we will notify our school community the following ways:
- The school website and social media accounts (follow us on Facebook and Twitter @stjohnschoolsea) will be updated to reflect the change in schedule. Our website will always be the first media communication tool updated.
- A text alert (SMS) will be sent via SchoolMessenger to primary and secondary contacts with active mobile numbers listed in the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
The school will communicate weather-related decisions by 6:00am unless conditions change during the day. If school is closed or delayed, Extended Daycare will mirror the school schedule. Should the school start time be delayed, hot lunch may be impacted by late starts and those changes will be communicated via email. As always, we will make these decisions based on the safety of all involved.
Please ensure all mobile numbers for your primary and secondary contacts are updated and current in PowerSchool if you wish to receive SMS notifications. Additionally, please update your emergency contacts in PowerSchool if you have not done so already.
