Inclement Weather/Emergency Closings

Opening late or full day closures are an individual decision made by Sue, the owner.  Parents should call the center or check this website for weather-related announcements.  If Friday’s Child decides we will need to close early, we will email all parents and call parents at their work number or on their cell phones.
