October 28, 2008 Dear Parents/Guardians: As winter approaches, it is time to make you aware of our inclement weather procedures. Regarding the cancellation of school buses in the morning, please refer to the “Transportation Information Procedures” booklet, which was sent home in September. As the booklet indicates, please listen to the local radio stations for school closures and cancelled buses. We ask that you do not call the school. Telephones lines must be kept open for school board officials to contact us and for any emergency situations. Non-bus students will only be dismissed at the normal dismissal times at lunch or the end of the school day. Parents/guardians of walkers are also requested to complete the attached form. NOTE: If “early dismissal” occurs and we must send the buses out immediately, each family must have a „plan‟ in place so your child(ren) arrive(s) at their destination safely. So we can reinforce your „plan‟ at school, please complete the attached form and return it to the teacher of the youngest child attending Lourdes by Tuesday, November 4th. The safety of our students is important and we appreciate your assistance and cooperation. Sincerely, Lynn Vivian-Woodbeck Principal Attch.
