January 4, 2022 --  

Dear Medfield Families,

With the potential for winter weather on the way, I wanted to remind everyone about our inclement weather procedures. We will once again utilize the Blackboard-Connect System to notify parents if school is closed, delayed, or dismissed early. The phone call will be sent to each landline and cell phone number that is currently on file with the district.

In addition to the phone call, the announcement will appear on:

·Twitter - Follow me @JeffreyJMarsden (I post this first)

·Television Stations: Boston 25, WBZ 4, WCVB 5, and WHDH 7

·Our district website: www.medfield.net

If school is canceled this year, we will have a "traditional snow day" not a "remote learning day". Please remember that there will be times when school is not canceled, delayed, or dismissed early and the weather is still inclement. Those days will feature slower travel for buses and cars, but will not necessarily require a change in the normal schedule. If you ever feel it is unsafe to travel, you always have the option to keep your child home. Please note that the decision to cancel school cannot always be made the night before and often needs to be made very early in the morning after consultation with the DPW and our facility staff.
