School Closing Information

Throughout the school year, there may be various reasons for school closings, delays or early dismissals. Inclement weather, icy roads or breakdown in heating or electrical systems, may be causes for this action.

Parents are asked to listen to the local radio and TV stations for pertinent announcements. The decision to close or delay the opening of school will be made by 6:00 am and will be announced at intervals on local radio or television stations. Parents will be notified through School Messenger.

PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT THE SCHOOL OFFICE HAS ALL UPDATED PHONE NUMBERS ADDRESSES AND EMAIL. Since Blessed Sacrament School is located within the Erie School District, the announcement will be made that all Erie City Schools and Erie Catholic or Parochial Schools will be closed or delayed. Please do not call the school or faculty members at home to ask about closings or delays. It is particularly important that school telephone lines be kept open in these circumstances. In the event of severe weather, and
especially with young students, parents may use their own discretion in these matters.
