DELAYED SCHOOL OPENING
A delayed school opening is an alternative to closing on inclement weather days when road conditions show signs of improving later in the morning. At Vance Charter, delayed opening begins at 10 AM. The Before School Program will not be available on late opening days, so parents are not to drop their children at school earlier than 10 AM. In the event of such a delayed opening, notification will be broadcast by radio, television, our website and ED-CONNECT.

EARLY DISMISSAL
In the event of an emergency or inclement weather that requires the ENTIRE SCHOOL to DISMISS EARLY, the following procedures will be put into place:
• ED-CONNECT SYSTEM will be set to automatically call every household with a message.
• Emergency phone chain by homeroom, daytime number.
•  Television or website for an official announcement.
• Parents who are taking their own and other children must advise the teacher of all students leaving in their vehicle.
