We go by the White County School System closings.  If schools in White County are closed on a Wednesday due to bad weather, then SOR is also closed.  However, we do keep in mind the conditions in Habersham County, and may make a decision to close if storms or road conditions warrant it.  This is also true for Sunday sessions; if roads are bad or storms are severe, we will close.  Please watch the Current Events page (home page) of this website for all postings; we will also send a message out via our parish app.  Or, you can call Laurie at 770-654-9707 if you are unsure.

As always, safety is our main concern, so parents, please use your own judgment.  Thank you!
