Emergency Policies / Procedures

Emergency Cards

At the beginning of each school year, parents are required to complete a Student Emergency Information Sheet which was sent home in the 1st day packet.  It is imperative that the school be able to reach you to inform you of illness or an emergency situation. It is also important to list the names of others who can be contacted should you be unavailable.  Please keep the office updated of any changes.

Emergency Closings and Delays

If inclement weather or some other emergency requires that the school be delayed or closed, this information will be announced on the School Reach System. This information will also be posted on the school website. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL OR RECTORY FOR THIS INFORMATION.

Modified Kindergarten Schedule

When Holy Trinity School has a two hour delay all half and full day students will report to school by 10:00 A.M.  At 12:30 PM the half day students will be dismissed.  You will pick up your child at the car rider doors as usual.

The full day students will report to the cafeteria at 12:30 PM for lunch and be dismissed at the regular time of 2:45 PM.

11:45A.M. Dismissal on a Two Hour Delay

In the event of a two hour delay on a day in which we have an 11:45 AM. dismissal scheduled for a faculty meeting the following procedure will occur.  The students will arrive at 10:00 AM and will be dismissed at 2:45 PM

If you do not receive a call that HTS is delayed or cancelled, but your public school district which provides your child’s transportation is, only those children should follow the delay or cancellation.  Children who ride the buses of other districts who are not delayed or who are driven should arrive at the normal time.  PLEASE NOTE:  Because our attendance registers are legal indicators of a child's presence at the times we are in session, children who arrive late or are absent because of busing when school is in session will be marked as Excused Tardy or Excused Absence.

Emergency Dismissals

In the event that we would be required to dismiss school early, this information will be announced on the School Reach System. The school will follow the Emergency Plan form which you submitted to the school office. Be sure to keep a copy of your plan so that you are aware of the plan you created.  Plan must be enforced for the children’s safety. Do not call the school office with dismissal changes during an emergency dismissal.
