Snow Days Notification

Good Evening, 

I am writing to provide you with a reminder of Spencer-East Brookfield Regional School District procedures for inclement weather notices - if and when such notifications become necessary.  

Inclement Weather Notifications: As noted in our 2021-2022 school calendar, we will have traditional snow days this year. Safety considerations, uniform access to electricity/internet during the school day, and COVID fatigue, make snow days an important part of successfully navigating the school year. Calling snow days in New England is a difficult task.  As the Superintendent of Schools, I have a unique opportunity to evaluate conditions in real time, as well as consult with the National Weather Service, Department of Public Works, local Emergency Management officials, and neighboring towns. My decision regarding delaying, closing, or releasing schools early always has been and always will be based upon “safety first” for everyone within our learning community. If you have not already done so please put a plan in place for the safe care and/or receipt of your child in the event that a weather-related delay, closing, or release is necessary.

Notification Process: Our district has now transitioned over to the latest version of our App and website.  Our latest App and website services are our primary means for delivering the most up-to-date information to your cell phones with our notification feature.  If you haven’t already, please download the app on Android: or iPhone:

As well, as a backup communication service, notifications will be made through our OneCall Notification System. I will do my best to let you know the night prior, but not later than 5:45 a.m. on the day in question. Further, notifications will be placed on our website, Facebook page, and Twitter Account for the district well as Channel 4 (WBZ), Channel 5 (WCVB), Channel 7 (WHDH), and Channel 25 (FOX).

As always, thank you for your partnership and support of the Spencer-East Brookfield Regional School District! 

Sincerely Yours,

Paul S. Haughey, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
