Emergency Closings

EMERGENCY CLOSING INFORMATION
All parents should be aware of the following policies and procedures for school closings:

Inclement Weather:
The decision to close schools due to weather conditions will be announced via radio and TV for the Catholic elementary schools in Jefferson County. One of the following announcements will be made:

  • All Catholic elementary and high schools in Jefferson County are OPEN;
  • Catholic elementary and high schools in Jefferson County will be OPEN BUT ON A DELAYED SCHEDULE;
  • All Catholic elementary and high schools in Jefferson County are CLOSED.


Delayed Schedule:
If an announcement is made that Catholic elementary and high schools are on a delayed schedule, the doors at St. Patrick will open at 9:00 a.m., and school will begin at 9:50 a.m.

Early Dismissal:
The principal determines whether an early dismissal is warranted after consulting with the pastor and superintendent of Catholic schools. When it is warranted, due to inclement weather or to any other emergency, parents will be contacted via our emergency alert system.
