No School Announcements & Early Closings
Little Hands Big Hearts follows the Woburn Public Schools, regarding school closure. LHBH will be closed if a “NO SCHOOL,” “DELAYED OPENING” or a “WEATHER RELATED EARLY RELEASE” for Woburn Public Schools is announced. School closure announcements are publicized on local radio and television channels, including AM radio WBZ and WHDH, television channels 4, 5, or 7, and your local cable channel. LHBH also reserves the right to close at the discretion of the LHBH Director, for any reason that could cause an unsafe condition at the preschool. Announcements will be made via our website and/or emails.
In the event of an early closing of Little Hands Big Hearts Preschool, parents or contacts will be notified by either a phone call from their child’s Teacher/Staff member or a public warning system. Events that may require an early closing of preschool are severe weather conditions or warnings, technological hazards, fire, or utility disruption (water, heat, electricity), all which may cause regulations unable to be met.
In the event of a power outage, it is at the discretion of the LHBH Director if preschool classes will continue. Classrooms have large windows and flashlights, and LHBH is equipped with emergency lighting a weather radio. In the event of water or heat loss, it is at the discretion of the LHBH Director to cancel classes and notify parents or contacts of dismissal. Emergency dismissal is at the exit door next to the Preschool office if safe to do so. In the event of a hazardous material accident or something of a similar nature, the fire department or police department shall be notified immediately. Depending on the nature of the call, an immediate evacuation may take place. LHBH staff will follow the Fire Evacuation instructions.
