Closures and Delays

Inclement Weather at Holy Family Child Care

We value the safety of our children and our staff. At times, emergencies such as severe weather, fires, or power failures can disrupt Holy Family’s hours of operation. The executive director will make the decision to close and is responsible for notifying the proper authorities. If it is necessary to close the center for an emergency, parents/guardians will be notified by telephone when possible and/or will be informed by announcement on television and Internet sites.

Emergency Plans

To provide for the protection of the persons and property at HFCC&DC in the event of a natural or man-made emergency or disaster, HFCC&DC has an emergency operation plan in place. A copy of the plan is located by each exit. A copy of the plan will be provided upon request to any parent/guardian of each child at the time of the child’s enrollment in the center and when the plan is updated.


In case of building evacuation, the children will be taken to the Good Shepherd Nursing Home 159 Edgington Lane, Wheeling, WV 26003, 304-242-1093 until they can be picked up or the emergency is over. Parents/guardians will be informed by telephone contact after the move to the Good Shepherd Nursing Home. If the safety of children and staff would be compromised by evacuating to the nursing home, then the alternative evacuation site will be Triadelphia Middle School. Emergency Transportation will be provided by the Ohio County Emergency Management office.
