CDC Snow Days
When the forecast calls for wintery weather and both the Blue Valley and Shawnee Mission Schools are closed due to inclement weather, the CDC opens at 9:00 A.M. for Critically-Needed Care only. Please keep your child home if at all possible. Due to long distances and dangerous travel conditions we often have a shortage of teachers on these days. Check office numbers for information: 913-327-8050, 913-327-8051, 913-327-8052.
School-Age Children Snow Days
A snow day program will be offered when Blue Valley and Shawnee Mission Schools are closed, unless it is determined that staff are unable to get to The J. Check The J website to see if a closure notification has been posted. Call 913-327-8098 or 913-327-8079 if you have questions.
If we are open, we will offer critically needed care from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM at a cost of $30/child for J members and $35/child for non-members. Payment is required for participation.
Each child needs to bring a lunch, please no pork or shellfish. Children do not need to be part of the After-School Care program to attend on a Snow Day.
Early Bird care is not available on a Snow Day. You may not drop your child(ren) off before 9:00 AM.
If weather conditions do not worsen, Late Bird care would be available from 4:00 - 6:00 PM for $5.00/child; however, in extreme weather, The J may close early.
If the weather warrants The J closing, we will call you to pick up your child as soon as possible. The J does not call the media regarding the availability critically needed care on snow days.
EARLY SCHOOL CLOSINGS DUE TO WEATHER OR OTHER EMERGENCIES
Due to the last-minute nature of these events, the After-School Care program staff will work with 10/10 Taxi to provide transportation. Please be patient as weather conditions may cause increased travel times.
