Inclement Weather Policy (Change in policy this year)

TCH Administration determines school delays and closings with the assistance of local law enforcement officer Tom Flitton, and TCH outdoor services provider, Chris Danbrook. Parents will receive an email by 7:00 a.m. (or earlier if possible) notifying them of the delay or closure. The information will also be posted on the school’s website 7:00 a.m. Please note that TCH will not automatically follow the closure policies of TCAPS and NMC as it has in the past.
