Keeping the Global in Global Learning

What Happens If There Is a Two-Hour Delay?

Your child's safety is our highest priority. In the event that there is a two-hour delay in the school day due to dangerous road conditions during the morning hours, the protocol is as follows:

* Any school day delay would be announced at 5 AM.
* Buses arrive at bus stops two hours after their normally scheduled time.
* The building will open its doors at 9:50 am. Breakfast will not be served.
* Grades 11 & 12 leave the main campus for the Jacob's Center by 10:09 AM.
* Homeroom begins by 10:18 at both campuses.
* Students report to 2nd period class at 10:20 am.
* The day then continues as it would normally. After school programs are held.
