TCH Inclement Weather Policy:
TCH Administration determines school delays and closings with the assistance of 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 decisions of TCAPS and NMC.
