Because IACS serves a large region and does not have it’s own public works department to assess wintery road conditions, we make our decisions to delay, close, or hold normal hours based on reports we receive from surrounding districts. This process is an inexact science and we recognize that any decision will cause some form of hardship for families. In the event that we delay or close school, we will notify families in the following ways:
- Emailing the community using X2, just like “The Hawk”.
- Updating our website with an alert screen.
- Posting to Channel 4 (WBZ TV) and Channel 5/The Boston Channel (WCVB) websites.
We only make announcements if there is a change to the schedule. If you don’t see any of the above messages, then assume school will be running as normal. Lastly, IACS does not use the phone message system for weather related closings, since we try to make these decisions while students (and parents) are getting much needed sleep!
