Snow Day Disclaimer

Dear Skipper Families,

In Fairport Harbor, student safety is always our top priority. When our region receives a blast of winter weather it is often accompanied questions about school closing in the event of dangerous conditions.

The decision regarding school closures begins early and involves multiple factors:

  • Weather and radar reports
  • Reports from school and village personnel
  • Input and discussions with superintendents from neighboring districts

Parents can always choose to keep their children home if they truly feel there is a weather-related safety risk. These absences will be recorded as excused, with make-up work provided to the student, if the Superintendent designates the day as a Severe Weather Day in the school district.

Please do not hesitate to contact the district if you require additional information in this regard.
