In addition, I will also put a message on the preschool website at www.cbccumming.org and will also send out an email / Remind 101 text notifying all that the preschool is closed.
WHAT FACTORS ARE CONSIDERED WHEN MAKING THE DECISION TO CLOSE SCHOOL?
The safety of all Forsyth County children is the primary concern. Even if it looks clear on your street, dangerous conditions may exist in some other part of the district. In deciding whether the children will be safe, the following factors are considered:
Information on road conditions from the director of transportation and law enforcement agencies, including whether roads are iced or icing;
Time snow or ice starts and the amount;
Building conditions (e.g., whether we have power and heat);
Parking lot and sidewalk conditions; and
Temperature and wind-chill factor.
WHO MAKES THE DECISION?
The superintendent of Forsyth County schools is responsible for making the final decision, based on the above factors and recommendations from the district staff.
WHEN IS THE DECISION MADE?
The superintendent tries to make the decision by 5:30 a.m. so that the broadcast media can be notified.
WHAT IF SCHOOL CLOSES DURING THE DAY?
If school closes during the school day all parents / guardians will be notified via phone or email to come pick their child up at school.
WHAT IF FORSYTH SCHOOLS OPENING IS DELAYED?
If Forsyth county school opening is delayed, then Concord Baptist Church Weekday Preschool will be canceled for the entire day.
WHAT IS THE PLAN FOR RECOVERING LOST INSTRUCTIONAL TIME?
If the school is closed for inclement weather, there are no make-up days in the Forsyth County school calendar this school year.
