You can also contact the office if you wish to be added to the email list that is sent when there are schedule changes due to inclement weather.
Emergency school closings will occur only when severe inclement weather or other unscheduled measures occur. Do keep in mind that conditions in the wide area where Ashley students and staff members live are extremely variable. If Ashley Academy is open, but road conditions between your home and the school are dangerous, please do not put yourself at risk by attempting to drive to school. Call the office and inform us of your circumstances. In case of snow, announcements on T.V. and local radio stations will indicate whether school will be closed for the whole day or if opening will be delayed. Listen to the radio or television station for specific news about Ashley Academy.
If Ashley Academy is operating on a snow schedule, all classes will begin exactly one hour later than the regular starting time. Please do not bring your child to school early on snow schedule dates, because teachers and office staff may arrive late. When teachers do arrive, they are involved with preparing for safe arrival of children and are unable to supervise early arrivals. The snow schedule also allows for the driveway to be cleared.
