School Closing Information

IMPORTANT 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. Listen to WEBE 108 FM radio station, watch 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 bad 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.

The Catholic Academy of Stamford also has an alert system for unusual or extraordinary changes to the schedule or alerts on other urgent school related topics. It will be tied to the phone numbers and email that you provided at registration. Messages will be sent in text and voice. Please read/listen to the messages. DO NOT CALL the school office to inquire about an alert.


DELAYED OPENING
If we have a delayed opening, school will start 2 HOURS later than usual. At the upper campus this means doors open at 8:50 a.m. and at the lower school 9:00 a.m. for Before School Care. In this case, you can expect your childā€™s bus to arrive approximately 2 HOURS later than the normal time.

Please DO NOT drop off your child before 8:50 (upper school) or 9 a.m.(lower school) 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.
