Important Information About School Closures

In the event of heavy snow, dangerous driving conditions, power outages, or any other event when school MAY be canceled, please tune into the local radio station, KNCO (830 AM) or STAR (94 FM) for that information.  They announce local school closures every half hour starting at 6 AM.   Please DO NOT call the school office! As you can imagine with well over 500 students, everyone calling at the same time ties up all the school's phone lines and no other calls can get through.  
Thank You!
