Inclement Weather

  • How will I know if school is closed due to inclement weather?

The announcement of a school closing for any reason will be posted on the Unit 5 website.  Unit 5 uses School Reach, an automated phone messaging system, to notify parents of school weather or emergency related school closures.  School Reach will call the primary number to make this notification. Parents may also tune to WJBC (AM 1230) to listen for closing announcements.

  • Do students go outside for recess during the winter?

Weather permitting, student go outside for recess when the temperature (including wind chill) is 20° or above.  Please make sure students are dressed appropriately with coats, hats, and gloves as needed.
