A Change from Last Year
As you may know, Tom Thumb follows the Lakeland Central School District for delayed openings and scheduled school day closings. When the Lakeland Central School District has delayed openings, Tom Thumb will delay 1 hour only. For our “Before School Care” program, also known as, “Stay and Play Club” will open at 8 AM for those registered for this program. If Lakeland Central School District closes early due to inclement weather, Tom Thumb will allow working parents enough time to make arrangements for pick-up.
Improved Delayed Opening Policy
This is a new policy just initiated by Nancy Brophy to help remove some of the stress associated with delayed openings and early school day closings. This new policy gives a little extra time to parents and applies to both Tom Thumb and ThumBelina. Here’s an example, if Lakeland Central School District delays 2 hours, Tom Thumb will delay 1 hour only, (hence Tom Thumb will open at 10:00 for all students). For those registered for “Before School Care” program, the delayed is one hour or 8 AM. We feel this is an important change for those parents that need to get to work as soon as possible.
