School closing policy due to inclement weather: As wintry weather becomes a threat each year, we will keep families informed of school closings by texts, posts on our website, Facebook page and Twitter. We also contact the main local radio and television stations to post closing information. We do not always follow Hamilton County's closing policy, as their decisions are based on student transportation.
To sign up for text alerts, please subscribe to Infodirect through our front office. The annual subscription is $8 per family. Families may include multiple cell. phone numbers through one annual Infodirect subscription.
