Inclement Weather Policy

If the University of Delaware is closed, has a delayed opening or an early dismissal, The Lab School will follow the University schedule.

On occasion, even if the University is open, The Lab School might delay opening or dismiss early depending on road and weather conditions. This ensures that staff can arrive safely in the morning and prepare for the day or that all children, families, and staff can safely travel home in the afternoon.

All closures, delayed openings, and early dismissals will be communicated to you:

  1. Through the Remind System. If you are not already signed up for Remind, please join now:
  2. On the home page of our website:

Coming to school during inclement weather is always your family’s choice. We don’t expect you to take unnecessary risks to get here.
