With the return of winter weather, here are some reminders about Latin's procedures.
•As of 2014, Latin no longer follows Chicago Public Schools procedures for emergency closings. Latin may be closed even if CPS is open and vice versa.
•Safety comes first. Every family should make the decision to come to school based on the safety of the roads and time spent outside. Parents, please communicate with the school if you will keep your child(ren) home. Absences of this nature will be excused.
•In the case of a closing, we will alert families via email as soon as possible. Please check your Profile on RomanNet to make sure that your email address is listed and current. You will also receive an automated phone message to the phone number listed in the "Emergency Contacts" portion of your Profile. (If you do not hear from the school, you may assume that Latin will hold classes as usual.)
•Lastly, we will report closings to the Emergency Closing Center which reports out on their website (http://www.emergencyclosingcenter.com/ecc/home.jsp) and on news radio stations. You can sign up for email alerts from this website if you wish.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
