RAYMOND P. LAVIETES UNIT SNOW DAYS, DELAYS, EARLY DISMISSALS, NOTIFICATIONS
The Club usually opens by 10 am if there is no school due to a snow storm. This depends on how bad the weather is. Sign up for our Weather Alert emails which will notify you of any change in Clubhouse hours. You can also check our website, News Channel 8, or WICC for cancellations. See Emergency Notifications below for important information.
Delayed Opening Policy
Since we operate on the Shelton Public Schools schedule, if Shelton has a delay, our before school programs and Pre-K Program will be the same as that of the school. Meaning, for a 2-hour delayed opening, our building will open two hours later than normal (instead of 7am, we will open at 9am).
Early Dismissal Policy
The safety of the children is our primary concern; therefore, we do not put our vehicles on the road in bad weather. If there is an early dismissal due to inclement weather, we will not send our vans to the schools (Shelton school buses will still transport). PARENTS MUST provide transportation for their children when their child’s school is dismissed early due to inclement weather (or any other unplanned early dismissal), and PARENTS MUST notify the school of those transportation arrangements. All children will be expected to go home after school if their school has an unscheduled early dismissal (sometimes one school will close because of a unique situation). We will pick children up on regularly scheduled half days.
Mass communications about our Clubhouse hours will be sent to parents through our e-mail newsletter: snow day hours, delayed openings, unscheduled early dismissals, holidays, and anything else that changes our normal hours.
