INCLEMENT WEATHER DAYS
As we do each year, for any inclement weather delays or full day cancellations, we will follow the lead of Zeeland Public Schools. We will notify our families through our Innocademy Facebook page as well as email.
As a reminder, should there be a 2 hour delay, we will begin school at 10:45am, instead of 8:45am. Dismissal will remain at 3:30pm for that day.
Also, we are not planning to flip to remote learning during one-day delays or cancellations. Should there be an extended weather event over the course of several days, and we have the opportunity to prepare for it, we will be in communication with you should we make the decision to transition to remote learning at that point.
