Text Alerts – You can sign up for text announcements of closing and delays. Go to www.wsbt.com and click on WSBT Alert in the top bar. Fill in your information and scroll down to School Closing 7g where you need to check both Michigan City Area Schools and LaPorte Community School Corporation Schools

Our primary concern is your safety. Keeping that in mind, use your best judgment – your child will not be marked late if weather conditions keep you from arriving on time. Absences can be waived.

Snow Day Work – Students are expected to keep up with learning on snow days. As always Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic are the fundamentals and that should be the focus every day. Teachers will keep students informed of specific expectations; as a start, on snow days students should: keep up with assignments and read ahead for reading group, continue with a math lesson a day or write their own practice problems if they don’t have a book, and write an essay (as they practice in school).
