Should a severe storm or situation develop while school is in session, we will always try and use our Planned Early Release Dismissal times, so as not to confuse parents, teachers and bus drivers. But, if we feel, in the interest of safety, that it is necessary to dismiss students even earlier than that ouf our Planned Early Release Dismissal times, anouncements will be given to the radio and TV stations, phone calls to parents/guardians (ConnectEd) and emails will be sent (Blackboard Connect) identifying what times school will be dismissed. this will be an Emergency Early Release time that will be specific to that day/situation, and will not be a set time for every emergency.
