the release of their son  after an emergency or disaster. The
information provided will greatly increase our ability to quickly and to
safely dismiss the students when we are confronted with an emergency
situation. We ask parents to carefully consider the choices and to
discuss those choices with your son , as we will act according to the
instructions provided. Parents, faculty, and staff will be notified in
the event of an emergency or unplanned event that would be threatening
to the safe commute of our students and faculty and/or causes early
dismissal, school cancellation, or a late start. Classes will not resume
until such time as the R.O.N. Institute administration decides that it
is reasonably safe for commuting to the campus and attending classes
