Inclement Weather Policy (SNOW DAY)
Care on days when school is closed is at the discretion of the Rochester School District Administration and/or the Governor. If all District buildings are closed to provide safety for staff and families, care will NOT be available and SACC will be closed. 

If RPS announces school closing PRIOR to the start of school and conditions allow, SACC may be available from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Northrop Bldg. (201 8th St. NW) for children registered in the program. Be sure to send child(ren) with athletic shoes, outdoor apparel, and a lunch/beverage.


If RPS announces school closing DURING the school day, there will be no afternoon SACC. Parents/Guardians or Adult Emergency Contact Person must pick up their children at the site as quickly as possible. SACC sites will close at 1:30, or when school is dismissed.


If RPS announces late start, there will be no morning SACC.


Longfellow:  Same as above, except during Longfellow’s 15-day break, late start means SACC will begin at 10:30 a.m.  


Billing:  An adjustment will be made on your SACC invoice to reflect the situation and care provided.
