Inclement Weather Policy

Oaks Trail Academy makes every effort to be open on all weekdays of the year, except holidays as noted. We realize that parents need to work and that reliable childcare is very important. However there are times when it is not safe or feasible to operate the facility because of inclement weather ; i.e. ice and snow. In those circumstances, closures will be the same as those for Garland I.S.D. Many radio and television stations broadcast this information, as well as Garland I.S.D.’s website. If this information is not available or if the public schools are not in session OTA closing will be left to the discretion of the Executive Officers. Please check our website, voice mail, and Facebook for updated information. GISD Delayed Openings – Oaks Trail Academy will open the same time as GISD on delayed openings. Oaks Trail Academy will NOT provide transportation to public school on delayed openings but will make every attempt to pick up from school at their normal dismissal time. Weather closings are not subject to reimbursement. Regular tuition is still due. Field trips will not be attempted is weather conditions present a hazard. Please remember to leave a few minutes early when picking up your child during inclement weather.

Enrollment can be completed by submitting all signed registration and permission forms, a current immunization record, payment of the non-refundable enrollment fee and the first week’s tuition. A separate application must be submitted for each child. Oaks Trail Academy offers a 10% tuition discount to families with multiple children enrolled. Ask about special programs for public school teachers, active-duty military and police officers. We do not make it a policy to deny enrollment to children with special needs. Oaks Trail Academy makes no assumptions concerning any child’s abilities. We will make an individual assessment to determine if a child’s needs will be met in our group childcare setting.
