Updated Snow/Adverse Weather Policy as of December 8, 2010
The board of directors of Interlake has determined that Interlake will return to our previous policy of following the Seattle Public Schools’ (SPS) Ice & Snow Emergency Schedule. If SPS close, start late, or close early so will Interlake. To stay informed of SPS snow closures, check www.seattleschools.org or www.schoolreport.org.
If Seattle Public Schools are on break, the Executive Director (Carol) will make the decision regarding closures or late openings related to adverse weather conditions. Should Interlake be closed, open late, or close early, the information will be posted on the doors and the website, and the outgoing message will be changed to reflect that day’s schedule. Interlake staff may call you to apprise you of weather-related closures. For this reason, please ensure that Interlake has current contact information for you and promptly notify the school if your contact information changes.
During the school day, if the building is being flooded (ground water, sewage, debris, etc.) we will close the center. Parents will be called to pick up their children for the day. If the affected areas can be safely cleaned and sanitized in time, the center will open the following day. If a flood occurs overnight, parents will be notified as soon as possible of the closure for the following day. Information regarding the closure due to flooding, will be posted on the doors, website, and an email via our private website. The outgoing phone message will be changed to reflect the affected day’s schedule by 6:00 am.
During the school day, if a power outage lasts more than 30 minutes, we will close the center. Parents will be called to pick up their children for the day. If the power outage happens overnight and the center is still experiencing an outage at 6:00 am, we will post the closure on the outside doors of the building and note the closure on the outgoing voicemail and the website. If possible, we will send out an email via our private website.
