J. Addison provides an important public service to our staff and students. Any closure has a significant impact on the school community. Most cannot arrange alternate child care when schools are closed unexpectedly. In view of this, the School will not be closed due to snow or other weather conditions unless conditions reach the level of civic emergency (a very rare occurrence) or there is damage or other circumstances (e.g. power outage) at J. Addison School that makes it impossible to operate safely.
During snow days, it is common for police and other authorities to advise citizens to avoid unnecessary travel. These advisories do not constitute direction to close public facilities and should not be interpreted as school closure.
