St. Lawrence School has established a
procedure to be used in the event of an emergency early
dismissal due to inclement weather. We follow
Oak Hills School District for
Emergency Closings, Delays, and Emergency Early Dismissals.
For this procedure to work, it is essential that you provide
us with accurate home and work numbers.
If our school is forced to
close early because of extreme weather conditions or an
unforeseen situation, it is essential that we know what
procedure to follow for releasing your child/children.
We cannot have each child
calling home nor can we accommodate parent phone calls
requesting last minute changes to your stated procedure.
The procedure you indicate on the Emergency School Closing
Procedure form will be followed every time an early
dismissal is necessitated. This is to ensure the
safety of your child.
If the weather looks
threatening, listen to the radio or television or check the
television station web sites for school closing information.
DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL to see if we are closing
early. We cannot call out if every parent is calling
the school -- we only have two phone lines out. When
inclement weather forces an early dismissal of school,
ALL AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES WILL ALSO BE CANCELLED.
This would include detentions, tutoring, and choir practice.
Closing for snow or ice --
watch for Oak Hills
Closing for other reasons --
watch for St. Lawrence, Price Hill
Bus riders have to be especially careful
about watching the school closings because Cincinnati Public
School closings may be different from Oak Hills. If
CPS is closed, there will be no bus service, even if we are
in school. If CPS is open and Oak Hills has a delay or
a closing, I will call the bus company to let them know not
to pick up our students, but you will also need to know not
to put your children on the bus if it happens to come
anyway. Oak Hills sometimes has two-hour delays; CPS
does not, so on delay days you will have to provide your own
transportation to school at 10:00. School buses will
bring students home as usual if CPS is open.
If CPS closed -- no bus
If CPS open and Oak Hills
closed -- St. Lawrence closed, so do not put your
children on the bus.
If CPS open and Oak Hills
delayed -- St. Lawrence delayed, no morning bus.
Afternoon bus as usual.
Be sure to let us know when your
phone number changes.
Below are links to the
websites for several television and radio stations in the
Cincinnati area. We list these sites as a courtesy and
in no way is this an endorsement for any of the stations.
The Emergency Closing
Procedure will be utilized to the best of our ability, given
the time constraints, and with your cooperation in providing
accurate phone numbers.
