  • SEEC/SEE will be CLOSED if the Federal Government is closed.
  • SEE/SEE may operate on a LIMITED SCHEDULE when the Federal Government announces unscheduled leave, adjusted home departure, or any other approved late arrivals. Families will be notified via email by 7:00 am on the day in question.
