We will follow Knox County schools for closing due to inclement winter weather for snow and ice.  If Knox County dismisses early due to snow or ice, please make every attempt to pick up your child as soon as possible in order to maximize the safe trip home for your child and the staff members.

We shall not normally close for flooding, however, we reserve the right to close due to flooding in Knox County based on the availability for staff to make it safely to work and to maintain our staff to child ratios.  An email will be sent out regarding a closing due to flooding.

Temporary Policy to be reviewed Fall 2021

The Preschool of 2nd Presbyterian Church will continue to follow Knox County Schools for weather related closings for snow and ice.  However, if Knox County calls school the night before we will start with a 2-hour delay in order to assess the weather and road conditions at which time we will make a decision by 8:30 am about opening.  This information will be communicated by email and text.


Communication with the 2nd Presbyterian Church Preschool comes in a variety of avenues. Teachers use texting, phone calls and written notes to communicate how a child’s day is going. Administration uses email, texting, phone calls and written notes to communicate global news with everyone as well as with individual families. Our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/2ndpres.org) is also another avenue to glean timely information.
