Weather Delays and Closings

HLA may be closed due to inclement weather or other situations. Public media outlets and parents will be advised through an orderly process for notification. At the discretion of the principal, any classroom days lost to closure due to inclement weather or other reasons may be made up by adding an equal number of days to what was scheduled to be the end of HLA year.
