The following procedures will be followed for a school closing/school delay/early dismissal:
A decision will be made as early as possible, preferably by 5:00-5:30 am.
You will receive a call and email via Blackboard Connect.
School closing/delay will be announced on Channels 4, 5, 7, & Fox 25.
The no school/delay announcement will be posted on Facebook, the District Website www.asrsd.org, and tweeted via my twitter account, which is Mary Malone@marymalone7.
The message will be recorded on the district phone system at 978-772-8600.
Other Important Reminders:
The Ayer Childcare Program & Shirley extended day will both be closed when the schools are closed.
AM preschool sessions are cancelled in the event of a delayed opening.
School start times for a delayed opening:
High School 9:15
Middle School 9:30
Page Hilltop 10:35
Lura A White 10:35
Reporting times to bus stop:
There are often many questions on what time to report to the bus stop in the event of a delayed opening. The report time is 2 hours after the normal report time.
Example:Your high school student reports to the bus stop at 6:45. In the event of a delayed opening, he/she will report at 8:45, which is 2 hours later.
It may become necessary to close schools early due to an emergency. In the event of an early or emergency dismissal, all after school and evening activities are cancelled. In the event of an early or emergency dismissal, it is the responsibility of the parent to have an alternate plan for their child.
Please feel free to contact me at 978-772-8600 extension 1508, or at email@example.com should you have any questions or concerns.
