Inclement Weather Reminder

With snow in Seattle this week, it is a good time to remind the community about St. John’s inclement weather procedures. When inclement weather is in the forecast, the administration team convenes early to consider the conditions around the school, your commutes, and those of our faculty members. Once a decision is made, we will notify our school community in the following ways:

  • The school website and social media accounts (follow us on Facebook and Instagram) will be updated to reflect the change in schedule. 
  • A text alert (SMS) will also 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 6am unless conditions change during the school day. If school is closed or delayed, Extended Daycare will mirror the school schedule. Should the school start time be delayed or canceled, hot lunch may be impacted and those changes will be communicated. 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.
