Snow Days

SNOW DAY INFORMATION

Because of our shared transportation, our schools are generally cancelled whenever Traverse City Public Schools are cancelled due to weather. Visit the TCAPS website or call the Bus Garage (231) 933-1955 to determine an early morning school closure, or visit our home page or Facebook page.

On those occasions when our school calendar differs from TCAPS, parents will be notified of a GTACS “snow day” via ParentAlert and/or via Facebook and our Schools’ website.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Middle School

  • After five snow days, instructors may anticipate future snow days by sending work home to be completed if there is a snow day and returned for credit the next school day.

St. Francis High School

  • All Courses (other than AP): After five snow days (on the sixth day) students will be expected to complete any homework provided by their instructors. This is work that extends and continues the regular classroom lessons. On the sixth snow day, any work assigned by the instructors will be posted to Moodle, RenWeb, or e-mail by 11am.
  • AP Courses: Because of the rigid nature of the AP curriculum and the predetermined AP test schedule, AP instructors may give homework as deemed necessary starting on the first snow day.
