“Snow days”


Murfreesboro City Schools Extended School Program (ESP) desires to serve working parents who depend on ESP for their childcare needs during inclement weather – snow days.  However, we are aware that there are times when safety may cause ESP to adjust its hours or to close completely.


If school opens late, ESP will open at 7 a.m. at your home school.  If school is dismissed early because of weather, ESP will operate from dismissal until 5 p.m.


 If school is closed for the entire day due to the weather, ESP will operate at three locations with condensed hours, from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m.


Those sites and schools served will be:

Black Fox (serving families from Bradley, Discovery, Hobgood, Reeves Rogers and Black Fox)

Erma Siegel (serving families from John Pittard, Mitchell-Neilson Elementary, Mitchell-Neilson Primary, Northfield and Erma Siegel)

Scales (serving families from Cason Lane, Overall Creek and Scales)

Registration information and notification is required before attendance.


After children are in ESP, if weather conditions worsen and the Director of Schools determines that ESP needs to close early, MCS will contact parents and the media.  In addition, “School Messenger” will send a message to your phone number on file when there are changes in hours of operation or closures.  The ESP Central Office phone number is 615-893-2313.  You may also keep up with notifications via Twitter at @MCScommunicates. 


ESP is open to those families who attend Murfreesboro City Schools in pre-kindergarten through sixth grade.  A completed registration form, registration fee, and health history must be on file.
