Delayed Opening/Early Dismissal Protocol
WESTON HIGH SCHOOL
Regular Schedule: 7:45 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Weston Public Schools typically have a one-, two-, or three-hour delayed opening (due to weather, staff development, etc.).
Planned early dismissal days are noted on the district calendar. For the 2016-2017 school year, the dismissal time for early dismissals listed on the school calendar (for staff development, conferences, etc.) is 11:45 a.m. Any unplanned dismissals (due to weather, etc.) are typically one-, two-, or three-hour early dismissals.
The decision to call an early dismissal due to weather is made with enough advance notice to mobilize the buses for all Weston schools. It is rare that school is dismissed early without prior notification. Announcements will be made on several radio and television stations, our school information line and website will be updated, and a SchoolMessenger alert will be sent prior to sending the children home. If school is closed, dismissed early, or delayed for any reason, you can find out by:
- Subscribing to SchoolMessenger alerts
- Visiting the district’s website: www.westonps.org
- Calling the district information line at 203-221-6500
- Listening to local radio and television stations or visiting their websites
