School Delays and Closings
Delays and Closings
When it becomes necessary to close or delay school due to inclement weather, an announcement will be made over local radio and TV stations. If SPRINGFIELD LOCAL SCHOOLS are delayed or closed, SJA will also be delayed or closed. Should an emergency arise concerning only our school, SJA will be specifically mentioned. If school is delayed or closed there will be no before school extended day. When the school is closed due to an emergency situation, all after-school activities and evening meetings are also canceled.
If St. Joan of Arc is on a 2-hour delay, morning preschool classes are cancelled. K-8 students will start the day at 10:10 a.m. All day preschool students will follow the 2-hour delay schedule with preschool starting at 10:30 a.m. and drop off time beginning at 10:15 a.m. Preschool doors will open at 10:00 a.m. to those preschool students who have older siblings in grades K-8.
