Holiday / Snow Closure

To assist working parents, English Rose runs a “Closure Program” during most days that public school is closed. This includes minor holidays, spring break, Christmas break, inclement weather, and snow days.

You can register for our Closure Program on an annual basis, which guarantees a spot for your child. You can also register on an as needed basis and pay a per diem charge (see the office for details). On closure days, we offer a recreational program for the children. Please see our calendar for our scheduled closure days for the upcoming school year.

When we have an unscheduled closing, or delayed opening, we will leave a message on the school voicemail. If we need to close early due to an unforeseen emergency, we will personally phone each child’s home or emergency number to let the parents know. At no time, will we ever leave a child unsupervised.
