School Closures or Delayed Start Times

Obviously, unforeseen school closures cannot be published ahead of time. Most of the time, such closures would be due to inclement weather. If there is ANY chance of such a schedule change (either a delayed start or an actual school closure), these are the ways you we communicate this information:

  • All-School Email: An email will be sent informing parents of closures/delays, provided electricity is on so that this can be accomplished.
  • NCA Information line: Call our NCA Info Line for Inclement Weather & School Closures:  (425) 407-1119  Ext. #1315
  • NCA Website:  We often will post closures/delays information on the front page of our web page (provided that there is electricity).
  • FlashAlert:  Visit www.flashalert.net for Weather Related Delays and Closures. Northshore Christian Academy uses SchoolReport.org to broadcast emergency announcements through TV, radio and the Internet. For more information—see details in column on right hand of this webpage or click on the FlashAlert graphic:

We make every effort to record a closure message on the NCA answering machine by 6:30am on applicable  mornings. Please note:  we may NOT close when the Everett School District and/or Mukilteo School District closes. On snowy/icy days we may start up to 2 hours late. In cases where school is delayed, half day Kindergarten and half day AM Pre-Kindergarten will be cancelled for the remainder of the day. PM Pre-Kindergarten will be in session in the afternoon. If this is the case, contact the school or use the above choices of communication, because a sudden worsening of weather conditions could cause us to completely close the school for the day. The Early Learning Center makes every effort to remain open, however; information pertaining to the center will be noted alongside the Academy's closure information.

These instructions are the same if we need to close school once the school day has begun and the weather necessitates us to change the schedule. Call the school and listen to the recorded message and check your email.

Fire, Earthquake, Lockdown Drills

Fire, earthquake and lockdown drills are practiced throughout the school year. The first drill of the year is scheduled; the subsequent drills occur often without warning. An alarm bell is rung continuously until all personnel, students and guests have exited the building. Everyone must exit the building when the alarm goes off.
