8:10 AM: TILDEN SCHOOL is OPEN, as they usually are, even when it snows:
Tilden usually does not take days off for snow. If you feel that you can make it to school safely, please bring your child in. Most of the staff live nearby and can walk or drive to school, even on snowy days. Please make sure your child is dressed in appropriate warm coats, hats, and mittens/gloves, as the kids will have an opportunity for extra outdoor play time in the snow with their friends.”
If you are concerned about ice in the lot, or unsure of driving to school in the snow, please know that there is no expectation on our part that you bring your child in. Your family’s safety is out main concern, and we realize that everyone’s streets, vehicles, and comfort levels are different. Please base your decision about coming to school on what is best (and safest) for you and your family.
ALSO PLEASE NOTE: We will have the parking lot gated off this morning, to preserve the lovely snow for the kids to play in. Please plan to park on the street this morning.
8:36 AM: Update –
SOUTH SEATTLE COLLEGE: Now CLOSED.
