Inclement Weather During School Day
If it begins to snow during the day, students may be dismissed early. PFS will announce an early closing time over the above radio stations and post this notice on the website. Parents may also call the school for closing information, but please be aware that due to a heavy volume of calls, your call may not get through the first time. As a general rule, if it begins to snow substantially during the day and the weather forecast is for winter storms, parents may pick up children any time during the school day. Please be aware of the possibility of an early dismissal, listen to the radio, and have a plan whereby your child knows to go to the home of a neighbor or friend if he/she arrives home earlier than expected and no one is home.
Please do not risk driving on unsafe roads to bring your child to school-
this will count as an excused absence.
