Winter Weather Delay & Closing Policy
Indiana winter weather can be unpredictable, so we want to let you know what to expect for potential school delays and closings. Below are some commonly asked questions on this topic.
How do you decide to delay or cancel school?
When making this decision, our top priority is keeping our students, parents, and employees safe. While snow, sleet, and ice do present challenges, we aim to keep school open whenever possible.
Our school administration and Miller Transportation (our bus company) staff will take into account road conditions, wind chill, weather outlook for the rest of the day, and transportation capability.
If severe conditions look like they will improve as the morning goes on (end to sleet/snow, warming temperatures, etc.), we may decide to delay school. If it appears a late start schedule would not alleviate conditions, we will be closed.
How will I know if school is delayed or closed?
Please check the following tools to see if Providence Cristo Rey High School has a school delay or closing:
TV stations - Weather delays or cancellations will be reported to local news stations. Click on the links below to see each channel's weather alert page:
Robocall - Students and employees will receive a robocall notification. Please make sure we have a current phone number.
Email - Students and employees will receive an email notification.
If there is a two-hour delay, how do I know when my bus will come?
If we delay on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, your bus will arrive 2 hours after your regularly scheduled stop time.
If we delay on a Friday, your bus will arrive 1 hour after your regularly scheduled stop time, due to the already delayed Friday schedule.
Are there make-up days?
If school is delayed, there will be no need for a make-up day. If school is closed, we will have a make-up day on either Friday, February 16th and/or Friday, March 30th.
Make-up days are subject to change as needed by school administration.
How will I know if my after-school activity is cancelled?
Student athletes should watch for email, text, or VNN alert messages from their coach or listen for a school announcement about practice or game cancellations.
Other after-school groups (Robotics, DECA, Student Council, Parent Club, etc.) should watch for notification from school staff about cancellations for their meeting or event.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
