Emergency Closing Guidelines

Morning Closings & Late Openings

St. James Academy will make an independent decision regarding delays and closures. The safety of our families and staff informs our decisions regarding winter weather and road conditions. St. James’ families travel from many locations in Baltimore County and beyond. When St. James decides to remain open, each family should assess the local weather conditions to determine if travel to school is safe. If a family communicates the decision to keep their student home due to inclement weather, that absence will be excused. We will communicate decisions in a timely manner through the emergency notification system as well as on social media.

Afternoon Early Dismissals

St. James Academy will make a decision regarding early closings due to weather. Parents who have an email address on file in the School Office will receive notification of early dismissals through the emergency notification system.
