Elim Christian Services strives to serve each person entrusted to our responsibility. We are committed to promoting the safety and security of our staff, our students, and those who depend upon our services. From time to time, that means we need to communicate urgent matters, such as school closings due to weather or other events, or to provide information related to ongoing emergency situations (e.g., class cancellations, office closings, etc.). We will provide those updates on this page, as needed, and highlight such events on the home page of this website in order to maximize your access to important and urgent information.

In the case of an emergency, we ask that you await information to be given to you by representatives of Elim Christian Services. In the case of an emergency situation, it is likely that our phone lines will be occupied.
