2016-2017 Temple Isaiah Religious School Snow Cancellation Policy and Procedure


The following notifications will be made if school is cancelled due to inclement weather:

An announcement will be made on the Temple Isaiah website:  www.templeisaiah.net.
A message will be included on the Temple phone system: 781-862-7160.
A school-wide e-mail will be sent to families and staff.

The following TV/radio stations will carry our no-school announcement:

WHDH-TV Channel 7 (680 AM radio)      www.whdh.com
WCVB-TV Channel 5                 www.bostonchannel.com
WBZ-TV Channel 4                           boston.cbslocal.com

You can sign up for direct text message alerts on school closings through these news channels.

Note: Although we have students who attend school in a number of different districts, as well as various private schools, it is common practice for synagogue religious schools to relate snow-closing policies to the town in which the synagogue is located for safety reasons. We do understand that students who live outside of Lexington may not come when the school is open because of conditions in their towns.

Tuesday, Wednesday:  If the Lexington Public Schools are cancelled (not delayed), our policy is to cancel our afternoon classes as well. Click here for the Lexington Public School snow status.  We will also send out a school-wide e-mail to families and staff.
If Lexington schools are open, but we cancel due to inclement weather in the afternoon, we will put this information on the temple website, and on the TV/radio stations listed above. We will also send out a school-wide e-mail to families and staff.
Sunday Mornings:  If Temple Isaiah classes are cancelled, we will put this information on the temple website and on the TV/radio stations listed above. We will also send out a school-wide e-mail to families and staff.
