Inclement weather poses a safety hazard for transportation to and/or from school. All SLLIS campuses will follow the same protocol in the event of inclement weather. SLLIS may opt to close school during inclement weather.However, if the weather is not serious enough to close school, we may announce a “late start” day. This means that the school will open at 9:15 instead of 8:15am, allowing families and employees more time to travel safely to school. The Mosaic (Before/After School Program) will always be cancelled in the event of a “late start” day. Of course, for safety reasons, attendance on “late start” days is at the discretion of the parent. In the event of potential inclement weather while school is in process, we may announce an “early” dismissal.
As a reminder, should an inclement weather announcement such as a school closing or a late start be necessary, we will notify you all via the following outlets:
1) A BrightArrow message will be sent out via phone and email by Facilities Manager Sylvia Evans. (Be sure to keep your contact information current using MySLLIS online or by emailing SLLIS Registrar – Amanda Harris – firstname.lastname@example.org
2) News Channels 2, 5, & 11 (KTVI & KSDK) will post the school announcement on the ticker at the bottom of their station screens
3) Radio station AM 1120, KMOX, will announce the inclement weather status
