Early Closings and Delayed Openings

St. Ann Academy will follow the Bridgeport Public School System decision regarding delayed openings or early dismissals due to inclement weather or other emergency situations. There is no separate announcement for St. Ann Academy.  Extended Day is CLOSED when Early Dismissal is called for weather.

Announcements will be broadcast over local radio and TV stations, and a voice message will be activated to a parent’s home, cell and email address. Please do not call the school or the rectory, as this will unnecessarily tie up phone lines. If an early dismissal announcement is made we implement the dismissal procedures parents/guardians have indicated on the Dismissal Section of your online forms. You must have an emergency number listed where someone who drives can be reached.

Make sure your child knows what to do if an early closing is announced. NOTE: Should Bridgeport Public Schools close for HEAT RELATED issues, St. Ann Academy will be OPEN since all classroom spaces are air-conditioned.
