School Closing Information

We would like to be prepared ahead of time for school closings and early dismissals that may occur. Listed below is important information that you need to know regarding school procedures. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL!

The Catholic Academy of Stamford follows Stamford Public Schools for weather related closings, delays and early dismissals. The decision is made by the Superintendent of the Stamford Public Schools. The Catholic Academy of Stamford will use our alert system to notify you via text, email, and voicemail to the phone numbers and email addresses that you provided at registration.  Please read/listen to the messages. DO NOT CALL the school office.  Closings will also be listed on CT News Channel 12, or register your cell phone with the Stamford Public Schools to receive alerts. If you hear or see that Stamford Public Schools are closed or delayed, we will follow suit.

If inclement weather is predicted or occurs during the day while we are in session, PLEASE tune in to the media stations above so that you will be aware if schools close early. The decision for early dismissals is usually made before 10:30 a.m.

DELAYED OPENING
If we have a delayed opening, school will start 2 HOURS later than usual.  This means doors open at  9:00 a.m. for Before School Care. In this case, you can expect your child’s bus to arrive approximately 2 HOURS later than the normal time.


Please DO NOT drop off your child before 9 a.m. because there will be no supervision available in the school.

 
SCHOOL CANCELLATION
If the Stamford Public Schools cancel due to inclement weather, we are also closed. If school is cancelled for the day, all daytime and evening school events held at the school are cancelled.

EMERGENCY EARLY DISMISSAL
In the event of an early dismissal all after school programs held in the school are cancelled, including the After School Care Program.
