Delayed openings will always be two hours late (never just one hour). Students on both campuses should report to their appropriate class by 10:25 a.m. on these days. 

Families should continue consulting the media until 9:00 a.m. on days when a delayed opening is announced.  Up until 9:00 a.m. the school may opt to change from a delayed status to a closed status for the day.  After 9:00 a.m. no such change will be made.
