MORNING CARE SERVICES

Our morning care services for "Delayed Openings" are as follows:

If Lowell or Dracut has a 2 hour delay, morning care will start at 8:50am. Our school day will begin at 9:45am.

If Dracut has a 1 and a half hour delay (90 minutes), morning care will start at 8:20am. Our school day will begin at 9:15am.

If Lowell or Dracut has a 1 hour delay, morning care will start at 7:50am. Our school day will begin at 8:45am.

The doors of our school will not open until these designated start times. Therefore, we are requesting that no child/children be left in the schoolyard at any time before the arrival of a Saint Michael staff member.

 

LOWELL BUS STUDENTS

Pick-up time for all bus students may be delayed by one hour or two hours, so your normal bus time pick-up will also be delayed.

 

Please help us out by abiding by these guidelines. If a SMS Connect Call does not occur for any reason, please refer to the TV or any news website. Thank you for your cooperation.
