You should be aware of the following procedures should there be an emergency situation, weather related or otherwise, that would entail the closing of school. The pastor and principal can make their own decisions based on local needs. An automated phone call (home and cell) and an email will be activated informing the members of the faculty and staff.
St. Sebastian is registered with the Emergency School Closing List on Channel 2 WCBS and Channel 11 WPIX Morning News. School closings will flash on the bottom of the television screen as well. IF CBS Channel 2 news does not show a scroll on bottom of your screen, go to www.cbsnewyork.com – look for the header SCHOOL CLOSINGS in red. Click on school closings and scroll down to the Queens Private for St. Sebastian School listing. Same can be applied for WPIX 11, go to www.wpixnewyork.com – SCHOOL CLOSINGS and look for our school name.
The School has implemented an automated phone/email messaging service – ONE CALL NOW – to alert families/guardians of any emergencies or school closings. You will receive a phone call or email in the event that school will be closed via phone and/or an email.
