Snow Procedures & Policies
Where should you check if you think it might be a snow day?
We send notification via email to all families about snow delays, cancellations, and early releases. We also publish our delays and cancellations on the major television channels, on the homepage of our website (bar across the very top), and our telephone announcement (505-992-8284). There may be the rare exception to this. If you are unable to obtain specific information about Desert Academy, please be aware that we will always follow the Santa Fe Public Schools with regard to delays, releases and cancellations. In the interests of the safety of our families, we may, at times, go one step further and close when the public schools do not. Rest assured, however, that whenever the public schools begin late, release early, or cancel, we will, too.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our front desk at 505-992-8284.
Snow Delay Schedule
SNOW DELAY SCHEDULE: no off-campus lunch; no Middle School Focus/Advisories
PM SCHOOL RELATED ACTIVITIES: Case by case basis.
A delay may or may not impact the school sponsored evening activities. Travel to Away Games is dependent on the host school’s weather conditions and cancellation.
The school administration will make every effort to communicate via email any PM activity cancellation by noon on a school delay day.
SNOW CANCELLATION PROTOCOL:
PM ACTIVITIES: All school related activities are cancelled unless they are district or state athletic championships.
WEATHER RELATED EARLY DISMISSAL:
On rare occasions, we may decide that an early dismissal is prudent and necessary. In those cases we will post on our website and send an email to the community announcing an early dismissal. Students will be instructed to call their families alerting them to an early dismissal.
