Evergreen Charter School Procedure

If it is necessary to close or delay school, the Evergreen Charter School will attempt to make this decision as early as possible. Once a decision is made to close or delay school, the information will be shared with the parents as quickly as possible.

The Evergreen Charter School, in an effort to improve communications between families and school, has implemented an automated phone calling system (Phone Blast). This program allows the immediate notification to all households and parents, by telephone, of any critical or unplanned event that will cause school cancellation, delay or an early dismissal.

The school will continue to use the television to broadcast school closings and delays due to weather. TO DO THIS WE MUST HAVE YOUR CURRENT CONTACT INFORMATION, PLEASE UPDATE INFORMATION AS NEEDED WITH THE FRONT DESK.

In the event school is placed on a morning delay, early release or closed, follow one of these patterns: 

  • Two (2) Hour Delay – The breakfast program will be delayed as well.
  • Early Dismissal – Early dismissal for inclement weather will automatically cancel all after-school activities.
  • Cancellation of the School Day – Depending upon a radical weather reversal, evening activities may be permitted determined by the building principal and Board of Trustees.
  • Please note that on days schools are closed or dismissed early due to inclement weather there will be no Clubs or Basketball practices.

Information will be posted on the following stations:

School’s website (

Channel 2 (CBS)

Channel 12 (Cablevision) (

Channel 47 (Telemundo)
