SNOW DAYS: Most days we follow the Norwell Public Schools - If they are closed, we are closed. Please check our answering machine after 7:00 AM for any updated information on school closings.

If Norwell should have a delayed opening - we will open at 12:30 PM for our afternoon session. There will be no lunch bunch on delayed opening days.

If Norwell Schools cancel for the day - we will be closed for the day.

If Norwell Schools open in the AM and close during the day or if PM kindergarten is cancelled due to incoming weather, we will be closed at 12:30 PM. Please come and pick your child up early.

***Please note - First Parish Preschool reserves the right to make our own judgement call on school delays or closings, even if it doesn't follow suit with Norwell Public Schools.
