My Friend's House 
School Calendar 2017-2018
Inclement Weather
In the event of inclement weather, MFH will follow the AISD schedule. Should AISD close due to bad weather, so will MFH. If AISD should open late and announce a specific start time, MFH too will open at that specific time. If the local news stations report that AISD will have a 2-hour delay, then MFH will open at 9:45 am. We ask that you tune in to your local news stations for notification on AISD school closures or delays. In this event, we will notify parents via email, post on our MFH website (myfriendshousecdc.com), and post on our Facebook page (My Friend’s House Child Develop. Center) when we will be closing early for the safety of our staff and children. We reserve the right to close early on inclement weather days, such as sleeting rain or ice, at the sole discretion of the MFH Administration. After notification, parents will need to pick up their children AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. We understand that it may take you some time, but please remember the longer you take the worse the weather presumably gets. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. 

Please note: As outdoor play is essential to children's health all the children will go outside unless it is raining or we are experiencing excessive temperatures (hot or cold).

*No discounts from tuition will be made for holidays or other days in which the facility does not operate.

*Bad Weather Days and other days specified with proper notice
