It is the general policy of the Lexington School Committee that schools shall be kept open in accordance with the established school calendar. The Superintendent shall, however, have the authority to close any school or schools whenever conditions in his/her judgment are such as to endanger the health and/or welfare of the pupils.
In case of inclement weather, the Superintendent shall exercise his/her best judgment as to whether or not the schools shall be kept open. The Superintendent will consider a delayed opening as a response to inclement weather or other emergency conditions. A decision to open with a delay will be communicated to the public and to the staff in the same manner as a no-school announcement.
