In the event of inclement weather, Hammond will close at its own discretion. Our administration will monitor the conditions and will ordinarily confer with the administration from Heathwood Hall before making any final decisions. Both Hammond and Heathwood hope that by using each other as a resource, we can provide our communities with more prudent decisions in the face of inclement weather. These decisions will be made by 6:00 a.m. the morning of the school day in question. School closings will be announced on WIS TV, (Local channel #10 or Time Warner Cable channel #3), on the school's general voicemail and on our website.
In the event conditions warrant an early dismissal, families will be notified through Hammond's Alert Now system. This system leaves a detailed voicemail and an email through the email addresses and phone numbers you have given the school.
No announcements are made when weather and/or road conditions are not hazardous. Reopening Hammond after an emergency closing will be at the school's discretion. The announcement of reopening will be made on WIS TV, our voicemail and our website
