Welcome to River Oaks Church! We are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for children and youth to learn and grow in their faith. This page provides comprehensive information regarding our inclement weather policies and procedures for the ST. MARK Religious Education program.
Why do we have inclement weather policies?
At River Oaks Church, the safety of our attendees is of utmost importance. Inclement weather can pose potential risks and challenges, and it is essential to have clear guidelines to ensure the well-being of everyone involved in the ST. MARK Religious Education program.
Inclement Weather Procedures
Determining Inclement Weather
Inclement weather refers to severe weather conditions that may make it unsafe to hold our regular religious education activities. This includes but is not limited to snowstorms, ice storms, hurricanes, and extreme heatwaves.
In the event of inclement weather, we will make every effort to notify parents and guardians as early as possible. Our primary modes of communication include:
- Email notifications
- Text messages
- Announcements on our website
- Social media updates (Facebook, Twitter)
Closure or Delay of ST. MARK Religious Education
If the weather conditions are determined to be unsafe, we may decide to cancel or delay the ST. MARK Religious Education program. Our decisions will be based on the guidance of local authorities, weather forecasts, and the condition of our facilities.
Should a closure or delay occur, the following measures will be taken:
- Make-Up Classes: Any missed classes due to inclement weather will be rescheduled to ensure children and youth receive the full educational experience.
- Communication: We will promptly communicate any closures or delays to parents and guardians via email, text messages, website announcements, and social media updates.
Parent and Guardian Responsibility

- Stay Informed: Regularly check your email, text messages, and our website for updates regarding inclement weather and the ST. MARK Religious Education program.
- Ensure Safety: Prioritize the safety of your children and youth when deciding whether to send them to religious education classes during inclement weather. Use your best judgment and follow local authorities' advice.
- Notify Us: Inform us in advance if your child or youth will be absent due to inclement weather concerns. This helps us accurately monitor attendance and make necessary arrangements.
