HAST is registered with the Emergency Closing Center as our official notification site for school closing or delayed start due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. The ECC is widely used throughout the metropolitan Chicago and Northwest Indiana region.
The website is www.emergencyclosingcenter.com
From this site, you are able to request email notification in the event of school closing at HAST. To search and select our school, you must use our full name (Hammond Academy of Science and Technology).
Typically, HAST follows the lead from School City of Hammond.
To date, the only school days that have been cancelled were student conference dates. This has happened twice in our three years.
I remind all parents, staff, and students that we are required by law to have a minimum of 180 student attendance days. Any cancelled school dates would require us to make up these days at another point in the 2013-14 school year.
