School Cancellation, Delayed Opening & Early Release Notification Procedure

Reminder

School Cancellation, Delayed Opening & Early Release Notification Procedure
Effective November 20, 2018

Effective immediately, emergency automated telephone calls will be placed between 5:30 and 6:00 AM to notify parents of a school cancellation or delayed opening.  In the event that the Internet or telephone lines are down and calls are not successfully transmitted, the information may also be found on the Westford Public School website at https://www.westfordk12.us/ and on local television/radio stations.

Morning preschool and kindergarten classes are canceled when there is a delayed opening. If it’s determined that an early release is needed, notifications will be communicated via the same procedure.

The automated calls are considered “emergency notifications” and will be made districtwide to all listed numbers.  An opt-out option is not available. If contact numbers need to be updated, please notify your child’s school office.

Regards,
Everett V. Olsen, Jr., Superintendent of Schools
