Snow Policy

There are two possible scenarios which affect transportation of our students during inclement weather:

  • We will not transport a student who attends a School in a City or Town which has cancelled their Public Schools for the day.
  • We will not transport a student who lives in a City or Town which has cancelled their Public Schools for the day, even if their School in another area is open.
