Dear Cheverus Community,
As we enter the season of possible inclement weather, we want to remind families that announcements concerning the cancellation of school or late starts due to inclement weather will be made through our phone-alert system. We will also post any changes/cancellations on our website and local television stations.
This is also a good time to remind parents that when it comes to snow days, you have a decision to make as well. In making decisions about any delays or cancellations, we will always try to make the best decision for all of our families, but with the widespread locations our families travel from and with the inconsistencies in weather patterns in our area, it can be hard to make the perfect decision for every family every time. It can be raining & clear roads in Cape Elizabeth and snowing & impassable in parts of Westbrook.
Parents, please feel empowered and encouraged by the school to make the best decision for you and your children in regards to travelling to and from school during times of inclement weather. Even if we have not cancelled or delayed classes, if you do not feel it is safe to commute from your area please contact the Main Office to let us know your child will not be in school due to the weather.
Students, you also have a job on snow days - check for assignments. With e-mail and Google Classrooms, you know that your teachers are able to keep in touch and post assignments beyond the classroom, so please be sure to check these places when you are not in school due to weather.
John Moran, Ed.D.
