2012-2013 Holland Hall’s Inclement Weather Policy

In the event of inclement weather, Holland Hall will choose from one of the following four options: 1.) Close, school not in session 2.) Open, school in session 3.) Late start, school begins at 10 a.m. 4.) If already in session, dismiss early.


The school will notify the community of its status (closed, open, late start or early dismissal) through the school’s website, recorded on the school’s main phone line and submitted to the following media outlets – KOTV, KTUL, KJRH and FOX 23 as well as radio station KRMG. Once school has been canceled, please continue to check the school’s website for updated information.

The HH Alert system will also be used to inform you of the status (closed, open, late start or early dismissal). The HH Alert system will notify you via email, text message and voice message. Please log in to your Tuition Statement account and make sure your contact information is current and accurate. If you have any questions or have specific instructions on changes regarding your emergency contact information, please email Debra Silkman at dsilkman@hollandhall.org.

Late Start:

In the event of a late start, school will begin at 10 a.m. for all divisions. There will be no bus service; parents must arrange transportation. There will be No Before School Care or Early Birds. After Care will only be available until 5 p.m. 

Early Dismissal:

If school is in session and we need to dismiss early, parents must arrange to have their children picked up as soon as possible following such notice. Upper School students will be dismissed first in order to facilitate any carpooling that is necessary. Children in the Primary and Middle schools (PreSchool-Grade 6) not picked up immediately will remain with their teachers. Seventh and eighth grade students not picked up will be asked to remain in the Middle School Refectory.

Holland Hall community members should always put safety first when traveling during inclement weather. The school relies on the parents to make the decision as to whether a student can safely come to school on time, or at all, or whether the student should leave school early if icy weather conditions threaten. If conditions in your area are such that you cannot come to school, please call your division office as early as possible.
