School closing policy due to inclement weather: As wintry weather becomes a threat each year, we will keep families informed of school closings by email, texts from teachers, posts on our website as well as on our social media pages. We also contact the main local radio and television stations to post closing information. We do not always follow Hamilton County's closing policy, as their decisions are based on student transportation.
