School Closing Procedure
There may be times in which school will need to close due to inclement weather, power outages, etc. The travel to school by students, staff, and parents in a safe manner is taken into consideration as we evaluate the need to close school. While we use local area school districts as a guide, St. Paul Westlake makes its own independent decision regarding when to close school.
In the event St. Paul Westlake needs to close:
- The school will contact all the major radio stations and television stations. This decision will be made between 5 a.m. to 7:00 a.m.
- Check local news channels for updates. Fox 8 Cleveland tends to get our listing up the quickest but NBC 3 and ABC 5 will also be notified. Local news websites may also provide updated information.
Please note the following:
- If Westlake City Schools close due to weather, St. Paul Westlake is also closed.
- If Westlake City Schools are open, St. Paul Westlake may still close. Continue to check local media outlets for updates.
- Our school will mostly likely be listed as “St. Paul Lutheran – Westlake”
