Emergency situations can be a hectic experience for parents and students. Even worse is the rare occasion when it is necessary to send students home early. Many questions need to be answered immediately to allow you to plan for the care of your children, and attempted communication with the school, met with repeated busy signals, can be very frustrating. Communicating with your child ahead of time can help alleviate panic during this stressful time.
Please be sure to:
|1 HOUR DELAY
All students will ride the same bus with the same type of pick-up structure as under normal circumstances other than that bus will arrive at the regular pick-up stop approximately one hour later than usual. No structure changes will exist other than the time element. Under a one-hour delay, morning kindergarten classes will be held. There will be no vocational education classes.
2 HOUR DELAY
Under a two-hour delay, all students will be picked up as usual, except two hours later than on a regular schedule. Under a two-hour delay, there will be NO A.M. KINDERGARTEN. There will be no vocational education classes.
Above all, make plans ahead of time for these situations and make sure your children understand them. All students who are unable to be dropped of at home will be taken to the latchkey facility at the Village Elementary. If your child is missing, call the bus garage to verify if they were taken to Village Elementary.
In the event of an early closing in the Hartland Schools (prompted by severe weather, failure of a heating plant, loss of electrical power, etc.), the procedures described below will be followed. Make certain you have discussed with your student procedures they should follow if school should ever be dismissed early.
Radio station WHMI 93.5 F.M. will carry reports of late busses, main roads only, or school cancellations.
