Early Closings and Delayed Openings

There is no Before or After School care on a day with a delayed opening or an early closing. 

St. Andrew Academy will follow the Bridgeport Public School System decision regarding delayed openings or early dismissals due to inclement weather or other emergency situations. There is no separate announcement for St. Andrew Academy.

Announcements will be broadcast over local radio and TV stations, and the information is available via a link from the school website. Please do not call the school or the rectory, as this will unnecessarily tie up phone lines. If an early dismissal announcement is made we implement the dismissal procedures parents/guardians have indicated on the Dismissal Section of your emergency forms. You must have an emergency number listed where someone who drives can be reached.
Make sure your child knows what to do if an early closing is announced.

Arrivals, Dismissals & Tardiness

Please refer to the Parent Handbook for rules and procedures.
