Inclement Weather

In the spring of 1993, the Lexington School Committee adopted a new policy to deal with inclement weather.  It states that, “In the case of inclement weather, the Superintendent shall exercise his/her best judgment as to whether or not school shall be kept open.  The Superintendent will consider a delayed opening of either one or two hours as a response to inclement weather or other emergency conditions.  A decision to open with a delay will be communicated to the public and to staff in the same manner as a no school announcement.”

“No School” information, including delayed openings and emergency closings, will be broadcast on radio stations WBZ (Radio AM/1030; TV Channel 4); WRKO/WHDH (Radio AM/680; TV Channels 7 and 56); WCVB TV Channel 5; or WFXT FOX25. Please tune in to one station or channel after 6:00 a.m.

Please do not call the school unless it is an emergency.

In the best interest of public safety, please do not call the police, fire, or public works departments for “No School” information as their lines need to be kept open for emergency purposes. The best practice is to listen to one of the radio or television stations listed above or check the LPS web site for information.

In the event that parents or guardians feel weather conditions will not allow their children to reach school safely, they are encouraged to keep their children home.
