How do I know if school is closed or late?
The fastest way to find out about school closures is to check this website's Home Page after 6:00 A.M. If there is a change in the schedule for the day, you will see a bright red banner at the top with the information. Otherwise, there is no change.
The school answering machine will be updated by 6:00 A.M. Call 425-485-2585.
Local TV and radio stations will be notified, but it will take them longer to publish the information. Also be sure to watch for HCA in King County since there is a Heritage Christian School in Pierce County. TV: KOMO 4, KING 5, KIRO 7, AM Radio: KOMO 1000, KIRO 710.
How are closure decisions made?
We generally intend to follow the Northshore School District closure decisions. On occasion we may close even if they do not if outlying areas where many of our students and teachers live have more severe weather and road conditions.
