With the school currently under a Weather Caution and the weather maps showing bad weather all week, I wanted to take the opportunity to remind everyone about our weather policy. The following weather policy can be found on our website under the Swim Team Tab or in the 2018 Team Handbook.
- The staff will wait up to 1/2 hour into practice before we decide to cancel a practice.
- If the alarm goes off during practice and there are 30 minutes or less of practice, all swimmers will be dismissed. A MCDA coach will remain at the pool until all children are picked up.
- If the alarm goes off while there is more than 30 minutes of practice, we will take the team to the second floor balcony of the library (just in front of the pool gate), stay inside the office or move into the gymnasium. We will do everything we can to keep the athletes engaged in a practice setting; ie: dryland training or watching swimming videos. We will remain in a safe place until we can safely re-enter the pool, or practice is called off.
We have found that the most accurate weather app is . This is a free app and very reliable. Please check the front page of the Miami Country Day School website along with the radar throught the day before making your way to practice or picking up your child.
