School Closing Policy

1. In the event of dangerous weather conditions, it is the policy of St. John's Prep to close the school if the Diocese of Brooklyn announces that all elementary and high schools in the Diocese are closed or if the City of NY closes all the public schools.

2. In addition, St. John's Prep may close as an individual school. The Prep uses the One Call Now System. One Call Now will notify parents via email, text and phone call of school closings, school delays and any other prevalent school information. Parents/Guardians should ensure their contact information is up to date, with the Programming Office - Ext. 240. 

3. Any school closing announcement will be

  •  placed on the message of the school phone

  • placed on the school website

4. Finally, if there is any inclement weather on a day when State Regents Exams are being administered, you should presume that the State exams are still being given unless you hear a specific announcement that these exams have been postponed/cancelled.
