When To Know Faith Formation Programming Is Canceled
When deciding whether or not to cancel Faith Formation programming due to inclement weather, factors that are taken into consideration include:
• Amount and type of snow
• When the snow falls, and when the snowfall is expected to end
• Ability to clear parking lots and sidewalks around the parish church and school buildings
• Condition of all streets (thoroughfare and residential) and bus stops
• Freezing rain and the effect on roads, power lines and tree limbs
• Wind and wind chill
• Temperature (watched closely when predicted near 0 degrees Fahrenheit)
Our utmost concern is for the safety of the children we serve and those who teach them. Faith Formation will be canceled if the weather warrants closing. In most situations, the decision to close will be made at least 2 hours before start time.
Notification will be made several ways: the parish website will have it posted on the front news page, an email will also be sent to all parents (who have registered through the parish website), and notification of closing because of inclement weather will be sent to the following TV stations:
WGRZ Channel 2, WIVB Channel 4, and WKBW Channel 7
Please keep this information for future reference.
