2-HOUR DELAYED START TIME:
Ellsworth Hill’s start times:
2nd Grade: 11:00 am; End time: 3:45 pm
AM PS: No school
PM PS: No delay, 1:15 pm; End time: 3:45 pm
Hudson Schools has the option of delaying the start of school by two hours rather than lose an entire instructional day due to bad weather and road conditions. The District will use multiple resources to announce the day, including the Alert Now phone system. If a two-hour delay is called, school start times and bus pick up times begin two hours later than normal. If a two-hour delay is called, it is important to have alternative plans in place for childcare, particularly, since there is always the possibility that school may be canceled for the rest of the day if weather or road conditions do not improve. A second Alert Now call may take place within 60-90 minutes after the initial announcement for a two-hour delay should school be can celled for the day. HCER before school childcare, AM Kindergarten and AM Preschool are canceled if there is a two-hour delay.
Ellsworth Hill Snack Program: The Ellsworth Hill snack program began Tuesday, October 1. Healthy Snacks will be offered twice weekly on Mondays and Wednesdays. The snacks cost $.50 and will be available in the Nutrition Services lunch line. There is a limit of two snacks per day. The students will use their prefunded lunch accounts to debit these snacks. Please contact the Nutrition Services Office at 330.653.1203.
