Attendance when Foggy Day Schedule is Implemented:

Parents need to be familiar with foggy day plans and procedures. When a foggy day schedule ´╗┐is implemented school buses and schedules will be adjusted for that day according to the plan call (A, B, C). School will start on time; however, we acknowledge parent's judgement. Parents may keep their children home while a foggy day plan is in effect if they have no means to safely transport their own child. Tardiness and absence because of fog or inclement weather will be excused upon parent notification.
