Unscheduled School Closings:
Inclement weather is a normal part of the school year. Unscheduled closings will be announced via text/email notifications, and will also be posted on our school’s website and Facebook Page. Sterling Montessori will always follow Wake County Public School System’s (WCPSS) Inclement Weather Policy, but does not necessarily follow non-weather closings and delays.
WCPSS – Two Hour Delay Policy:
If the Wake County Public School System issues a 2-Hour Delay to the start of school in response to inclement weather, Sterling Montessori Academy and Charter School will also follow the 2-Hour Delay, therefore, the school will open at 10:30 A.M. (10:25 A.M. for A-Building). Staff is to arrive at 10:00 A.M. In the event of a 2-Hour Delay, Sterling Montessori will not provide Before Care.
WCPSS – Mid-Day Cancellations:
If Wake County Public School System cancels school during the day due to developing inclement weather, Sterling still has the option to remain open or also cancel school. In that case, you will be informed of the decision via text & email, our school’s website, and our Facebook Page. Families using our After Care Program or who have students in after school activities should be especially aware, as these programs may be cancelled due to inclement weather.
REMEMBER: When Wake County closes or is delayed due to something other than the weather, Sterling will not necessarily be closed or delayed. We will always send out a text & email when we are closed or delayed.
