Emergency School Closing/Early Dismissal/Delayed Opening

Schools may be closed because of inclement weather, power failure, or emergencies beyond our control.  Parents will be notified by the Honeywell Instant Alert System. Please ensure the phone number and email on file and in the Honeywell system is accurate.  In addition, it is advisable to sign-up for E-Alerts and always check the district web-site:


On days of a regular scheduled early dismissal CAS will be dismissed at 12:45pm.

The Kindergarten sessions are as follow:

Planned Early Dismissal: (i.e-Teacher Conferences, Thanksgiving, last day)

           Students will have am and pm kindergarten

Morning Session-8:30am-10:30am

Afternoon Session-10:45am-12:45pm


On emergency days, such as Weather, early dismissal will be 12:45pm:
***No Lunch Will Be Served***
           There will be No PM Kindergarten

           Dismissal will be at 11:25am

           Students that go to KWrap will go until 12:45pm
***No After care on these days***


On days of a delayed opening CAS begins class at 10:30am, which is a 2 -hour delayed opening  (Doors open at 10:25am). 
Kindergarten hours for a 2-hour delayed opening:
AM: 10:30 - 12:25
PM: 1:30 - 3:15


To notify parents of the emergency closing of schools and the early dismissal of pupils after school is in session for the day, announcements will be made through our Honeywell Instant Alert System.


Individual parents and CAS students should develop a “standing plan”, so that an early closing decision dictated by weather or emergency conditions will result in a predictable action by CAS students.
