School Closure Information
School Closure/Delay/Early Dismissal Procedures
If school is to be called off for any reason, or if there is a delayed opening, parents/guardians will be notified using the Parent Square notification system. This system will send a message to parents/guardians at approximately 5:30 a.m. In addition, the following television stations will be contacted and also displayed on the district’s website:
● WMUR TV (Channel 9 Manchester)
● BCTV (Channels 16 and 22)
● District Website (www.sau25.net)
● District Facebook Page
If it is necessary to call a 2-hour delay in the start of school, buses will make their normal pickups 2 hours later than the usual time, and the Bedford Early Education Program (BEEP) and morning kindergarten classes will be canceled. The Before-School Program will be delayed 2 hours. The school day will end at the usual hour.
Infrequently, and only under the most unusual circumstances, schools may be dismissed early. Every attempt will be made to notify parents/guardians of the early closure by calling the above stations to announce the early dismissal time, and by the use of our emergency notification service.
