As we approach winter and our first winter storm, a review of our inclement weather notifications is in order.
When inclement weather strikes, Roger Bacon will either cancel school or institute a 2-hour delay (school starts at 9:45 am).
Roger Bacon uses the Springmyer Communications Network to notify local news TV stations of the decision to either cancel school or have a 2-hour delay. The following stations are notified:
- WLWT/TV, Channel 5
- WCPO/TV, Channel 9
- WKRC/TV, Channel 12
- WXIX/TV, Channel 19
- WSTR/TV, Channel 64
Additionally, students will receive an email from the Principal and our phone notification system (School Messenger) will be used to make a phone call home.
The decision to either cancel or delay will be made as early as possible. In case of a delay, the school cafeteria will be open at 7:00 am for those students who need to be dropped off early.
Students should report to the location of the first exam at 7:45 a.m.
