School Cancelations/Delays/Early Closings
In the event of weather-related or other emergency, Windham Public Schools’ officials do their best to make timely decisions regarding school closings, delayed openings, or early dismissals. We aim to make decisions about school closings and delayed openings no later than 5:30 AM on the day of the event. Decisions on early dismissals are ideally made no later than 11:30am on the day of the event. Generally, if schools are closed for the entire day or if there is an early dismissal, after school programs, events, and sports are cancelled or postponed. Once decisions are made, it is our goal to clearly communicate any changes in schedules to parents/guardians and staff as soon as possible. School closings, delayed openings, or early dismissals announcements are distributed to all district parents/guardians and staff through our Blackboard call, email, and/or text alert system. To choose how you want to receive these messages, please register with MyConnect (at windham.bbcportal.com directions can be found under the Parents tab of our district website: windhamps.org). Announcements are also immediately posted to the district Facebook page (facebook.com/ windhamschools), on our district website, and are carried on radio stations (WILI AM/FM, WTIC AM, WICH/WCTY, and Bomba 97.1 FM) and television channels (WFSB-TV, WVIT-TV NBC Connecticut, WTHN-TV News 8, Fox CT TV, and if in the Charter Communications Cable area, Channel 192).
If Windham Public Schools’ officials find it necessary to close schools early in the school day and announce a 2-hour early dismissal due to inclement weather or an unanticipated problem, it is important to be prepared. Please plan for an alternate place for your child to go if you are at work or away from home when we have an early closing and convey that to the school so that student safety is maximized. Two-hour early dismissals will result in the following:
• There will be no afternoon preschool sessions, after school events, programs, or spots;
• Radio and TV announcements will be made by the above stations concerning the time of early dismissals; and
• Lunches will be provided according to the lunch menu, but will be served earlier
