10/15/2016 school closure due to series of storms

Dear all,

The national weather service is forecasting a series of storms with heavy rain and potentially damaging winds through Saturday. After evaluating the progress of the storms and considering the safety to travel to and from school, administration team has decided to close the school tomorrow.

According to our school policy, when the closure is due to inclement weather, no make-up will be made.

If you have further question, please contact your class teachers or email school: tcseattleschool@gmail.com.
All latest announcement will also be on school blog, http://tzuchiacademyseattle.blogspot.com/

Please stay safe and dry, keep our prayers so no damages will be done by the storms.

inclement weather policy

In cases of inclement weather, Tzu Chi Academy's policy is typically to follow Bellevue Public School closures. This Friday, however, Bellevue School District is already scheduled no school to have professional development. A significant storm with possible power outages is predicted for Thursday night.

Since we cannot follow our regular closure system, you will receive an email Saturday morning between 5:30 ~ 6:00 AM if classes are to be cancelled. The school blog website will also make announcement around the same timeframe. http://tzuchiacademyseattle.blogspot.com/

If classes will not be cancelled, there will not be a closure communication.

Buy some extra batteries or charge up your power banks just in case!

1.      不拿: 不需要的物品即使免費也不拿
2.      不買謹慎購物不浪費物資
3.      不過量: 不過量購買儲藏過久容易忘記使用或過期
4.      共用不常用的物品大家可以互通共用
5.      沒有也行: 不要有非要不可的念頭
