Plymouth UCC Snow and Severe Weather Policy 

February 19, 2018

This policy addresses the church’s concern for the safety of all who use the church building.  It provides a responsible approach to unusual and hazardous conditions caused by snow and severe weather. 

For ease of communication and access to clear information, we will follow the lead of the Seattle School District as follows:

  • If the Seattle School District is closed due to snow, the church building will also be closed. 
  • If Seattle School District schools open late, the church building will also open late
    • (ex: 2 hours late opening for the schools = 2 hours late opening for the church). 
  • If snow comes during the day and schools close early, we will also try to close early, provided we are able to connect with people who are here or scheduled later in the day.

Church members and staff are encouraged to check their phones for updates, listen to the radio and/or watch TV for announcements from the Seattle School District.

If there is snow or snow forecasted on a day when the Seattle School District is closed (for example, during their winter holiday or on a weekend), we will decide by 6:30 a.m. whether the church building will be open.  We will then leave an announcement on the church’s voice mail (206.622.4865) and on the homepage of the church’s website.  Messages will also be sent out via social media.
