Inclement Weather Notices – NO “SNOW DAYS” FOR ICADEMY STUDENTS =)

Wintery weather is just around the corner – ick!

One of the great things about iCademy is that no matter the weather, our students can KEEP ON LEARNING FROM HOME! Live lessons will continue and teachers will be available, as normal, on those days where the weather outside is frightful and our campus is closed!

If you are a student who comes to campus for Re:Fuel or the Elementary Hybrid Program on Tuesdays/Thursdays and the weather looks iffy, you will want to make sure to check if we are open before making the trek to campus. Our physical location in Zeeland will always follow Zeeland Public Schools weather delays and closings. If there is an AM delay, campus will be open beginning at 11:00am, instead of 9:00am. Again, all regularly scheduled learning will ALWAYS continue from home – – including assignment due dates and live lessons, no matter the weather!

You can find out if Homestead Campus is closed or delayed through the following methods:

  • iCademy Parent Facebook Page (join this if you haven’t already =)
  • Check your email inbox for an email from Leisa Lobbezoo
  • Check WZZM 13
  • Check WOOD TV8

Follow Us on Facebook

Feel free to join us at our public page iCademy Global as well as our iCademy Parent Group Page.
