Raven Report: November 4, 2020
For Día de los Muertos, Señora Leighninger and Señora Raven transformed the front desk into an ofrenda, a traditional altar to honor our loved ones who have passed. Students brought in pictures and mementos in special remembrance of family, friends, and pets.

Our ability to continue learning safely together on campus relies on the strength of our community.

Winter Weather Procedures
With winter approaching, we would like to provide you with information regarding potential school closings and/or late starts due to inclement weather. A decision to close school or delay the start of the school day will be made as early as possible, and no later than 6:30 a.m.

Please note that, in accordance with current school policy, consideration may be given to starting the school day at 10:00 a.m., when feasible.

School closing or a delayed start will be communicated through TV and radio media, posted on The Summit's social media pages, and communicated through email and text message. Teachers will provide information regarding "at home" activities through their respective class blogs. In the event of back-to-back or extended cancellations, teachers will update information each morning by 8:45 a.m.

In the event of inclement weather that is NOT deemed serious enough to cancel school but creates a situation where it may not be possible for you to safely make it to school, perhaps due to the location of your home, use your best judgment. Absences or late arrivals due to difficult road conditions will be considered excused.

DRIVE SAFELY!

Rest assured, we will exercise good judgment when considering a school closing or delayed start to the school day, always keeping in mind, first and foremost, the well-being of our Summit community members.
