Inclement Weather Procedures 

For questions regarding your student's transportation needs, please contact Mr. James Parker at or 301-475-7666 ext. 443.

Notification of Closures or Delays

In all cases of closure or delay, SMR families will be informed by text and email. Please make sure all mobile numbers in your household are updated in your family profile in Veracross. If your mobile number is not correct in Veracross, you will not receive SMR text notifications!  If you need any assistance, please reach out to Mrs. Betsy Haley at or 301-475-7669.

In situations where weather conditions pose a potential hazard to most students and/or employees, the administration will close, dismiss early or delay the opening of school. We will make every effort to make the decision for a delayed opening or closing by 6 a.m. 

It is important that families come up with a plan for early dismissals/delayed openings and review them with their children. 

In the event that school is closed or there is an early dismissal, after school activities will be cancelled. If hazardous weather is predicted during the after-school hours, activities may be cancelled. This decision is usually made before the end of the school day so that students can take their regular transportation home.

SMR is serviced by three bus companies. It is important the families make sure they know which company services their area and to follow the instructions below:
