If emergency weather conditions or other emergency situations should develop after school is in session and open for the day, an early dismissal will be announced and all students will be dismissed early so that they can arrive home safely on the buses. All after-school student-related activities would be cancelled for that day. Based on the day’s possible weather reports and weather conditions, parents/guardians should anticipate an early dismissal possibility and wait for a School Messenger message with specific details.
Parents/guardians should arrange to be home, or to have a safe place to which children can go until parents/guardians can return home. Should an early dismissal become necessary, the Mt. Sinai High School students will be dismissed before the elementary school children. This should allow older students to be at home when the younger children arrive. Parents should develop a plan with their child(ren) in the event they are not home when he/she returns home.
