Gaston Skills and Salem Industries will be open except for severe weather conditions. 

In the event of inclement weather and schools are closed, TLC and ACCESS will not be operating. THEREFORE, GASTON SKILLS AND SALEM INDUSTRIES WILL BE CLOSED.

When schools are on delay, ACCESS and TLC will be on a delay also.
The delay for staff is split in half.

Examples:

If schools are on a 1-hour delay, staff should report on a 1/2 hour delay.
If schools are on a 2-hour delay, staff should report on a 1-hour delay.
If schools are on a 3-hour delay, staff should report on a 1 1/2 hour delay.

Safety and Welfare are of primary concern. In the event of severe weather, all employees are encouraged to exercise common sense. Employees are not encouraged to drive if uncomfortable doing so. If Salem Industries and Gaston Skills are not closed, all employees are expected to call in if they are unable to attend, or will be late.

Remember:

  • If schools are closed, Gaston Skills and Salem Industries will be closed.
