Delayed Openings / Emergency Closings


    Saint Matthias School usually follows the decision of the Franklin Township School District regarding school closings and delayed openings due to inclement weather.  Announcements can be made as early as 5:30 AM.  Once the decision has been made, the information will be communicated via:


    If the school or school district calls for a two-hour delay, school will begin at 10:00 AM for all students, including the Pre-Kindergarten class.  Student supervision will begin at 9:45 AM.  The Before School Care will not be provided if there is a delayed opening.

    If an emergency closing becomes necessary after the school day begins, we will communicate the information in the manner stated above.  Be aware of the weather predictions for the day, so that you and your child are prepared for such a decision.

    It is of utmost importance that your child knows where to go, what to do and that s/he has a pre-arranged alternate place to go should you not be at home if such a situation arises.  There is no After School Program when there is an emergency closing.
