Weather Related School Closings —In the case of bad weather, please check radio and TV stations for either Michigan City or LaPorte School closings or delays. With Renaissance in the limits of LaPorte and in the Michigan City Area Schools district, we must follow both school systems weather closings. If Michigan City or LaPorte Schools are closed for bad weather, so is Renaissance Academy. Do not bring children in at all.
