Delayed Schedule Due to Weather

On delayed schedule, school begins at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 2:45 p.m. Remember to always check your television on mornings when we have potentially bad weather to check on the status of the school and/or day care. Remember too, that the Day Care will post its own schedule if the school is closed. The two main stations to watch to get this info are WLKY and WAVE 3. You may also call the school number and press extension #11 for updated information.

You may also call the school and press extension #26 to see if any day care providers will be in school on snow days. This is subject to inclement weather reports, such as the possibility of heavy snow, a tornado, or unusual rainy conditions.
Once students arrive at St. James, because of the number of working parents' needs, all means will be used to keep school in session until the usual dismissal time of 2:45 p.m. After school care will be closed if the School is closed.
