As we encourage outdoor play regardless of weather, please have your student bring warm shoes, hats and mittens to school so that the children may play outside comfortably.


As a general rule, the school will close whenever the Seattle Public School closes for inclement weather. If Seattle Public School has a delayed opening due to weather, Root Academy will be one hour delayed and will not offer AM extended care (7:30 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.). All notices for school schedule changes will be posted on this website.

If the decision is made to dismiss school early, Root Academy will notify parents via this website, a phone call, and/or email. In case of early dismissal, there will be no PM extended care.


School events that are scheduled on days in which the school is closed due to inclement weather will be cancelled unless noted otherwise on this school website. Anytime there is a question as to whether an event will be cancelled due to weather or other circumstances the decision for cancellation will be announced via this school website.
