Weather & Emergency Closings

Holy Family Catholic Schools works together with the Dubuque Community School District to adjust schedules and transportation in the event of severe weather or an unforseen emergency. Once an unexpected change to the school schedule occurs, communication will go out via the school notification system (phone, email, text), the Holy Family website, and the Holy Family Facebook and Twitter pages.

School Notification System

Power Announcement, Holy Family's system notification system, is used to notify families of delays, cancellations, early dismissals and other emergency situations. The notifications you receive (landline or cell phone, email, or text) come from the data you provide to Holy Family in PowerSchool. Please remember to update your PowerSchool account if your contact information changes.

You do have the option to set your notification preferences.

Media Alerts

All weather-related or emergency schedule changes will also be announced on the following:


The Holy Family Website

Social Media

Holy Family Facebook Page


Twitter @HolyFamilyDBQ


Local Media

The Dubuque Community School District will notify area media outlets of any weather-related school schedule changes for Dubuque public and parochial schools. Holy Family will follow these procedures for activities (i.e., practices, concerts, games, etc.) and may contact media outlets for specific notifications regarding Holy Family activities.
