Innocademy & Precademy will always follow Zeeland Public Schools weather delays and closings. If there is an AM delay, we will begin school at 10:45, instead of 8:45am. There will be no AM preschool in that situation.

When you see ZPS post a delay or closing due to inclement weather, please give us a beat and we will be sending that same information to our families =).
