All decisions regarding the day-to-day operation of Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School as it is affected by the weather are made by Principal John Marshall. To ensure the safety of students, CJ has in place four separate strategies regarding inclement weather: a two-hour delay, a school closing, an early dismissal, and the cancellation of evening activities (i.e. practices, school events, etc.).
To determine the appropriate strategy, the principal relies on general weather reports, the predicted future conditions, and takes into account the actions taken by surrounding Datyon-area school districts. Due to the school’s vastly spread family population, surrounding school districts must be used as a barometer to gauge the types of conditions impacting CJ students living in those communities.
Once a decision has been made, the school uses news sources, its Web site (www.cjeagles.org), the One Call Now telephone messaging system, and—on occasion—email alerts to inform parents and the community of the plan of action. Decisions regarding evening activities are also made by the principal, and cancellations will generally be announced around noon of that same day.
Chaminade Julienne employs three schedules to handle two-hour delays: a standard two-hour delay schedule for Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays; a Plan B schedule for a delay on a block Wednesday; and a Plan C schedule for a delay on a block Thursday. In every instance, if a student arrives at school before 10:05 a.m., he or she should report to the cafeteria for the proper supervision.
