Early Closings and Delayed Openings

St. Augustine Academy will follow the Bridgeport Public School System decision regarding delayed openings or early dismissals due to inclement weather or other emergency situations. 

Announcements will be sent out via text and/or email. PLEASE BE SURE THE OFFICE HAS ACCURATE PHONE INFORMATION.  Please do not call the school or the rectory, as this will unnecessarily tie up phone lines. If an early dismissal announcement is made we implement the dismissal procedures parents/guardians have indicated on the Dismissal Section of your online forms. You must have an emergency number listed where someone who drives can be reached.  

Make sure your child knows what to do if an early closing is announced.
