When Sandy Valley Schools are closed due to bad weather, St. James is closed. You will receive a text from St. James, normally by 6:30am, alerting you that we are closed. If the text doesn’t come through or you are wondering if we are open, check our facebook page at St. James Catholic School – Waynesburg for the latest school closing info. If we are open but Malvern, Minerva, or Carrollton are closed it is up to parents to bring your children, depending on your assessment of the safety of the roads in your area. Please call the school if you decide not to bring them so we know they are safe with you.
