School closing policy reminder

With the arrival of harsh winter weather, we wish to remind you of our school closing policy:

When inclement weather causes school closings or delays, information will be posted on our web site and social media platforms (Facebook , Twitter , etc.) and sent by email to all families.

Additionally, local radio and TV stations will carry announcements regarding MMS school closings. (WQBE, V100, WVPR, WCHS, WCHS-TV, WSAZ-TV). Because there may be a delay in these announcements from the time we send them to when they air, please check your email and our social media accounts first rather than relying on local media outlets.

MMS does not follow any of the Kanawha County Schools weather related procedures.

If circumstances require a delayed opening, MMS may open one or two hours late.

If you feel that the roads are in such poor condition that it would be difficult for you to get to school safely, please do not attempt to drive. We would much prefer that children stay home than have parents take unnecessary risks to get them to school.

Note: If school is in session when snow begins to fall, and you think that the roads are becoming treacherous, please come for your child immediately without first calling the school. It is much better to come get children than risk having the roads become so hazardous that you are unable to get to the school to pick them up at all. Mountaineer Montessori School does not make up snow days.

Stay safe and stay warm!
