winter Weather Closings

Winter Weather Closing Policy

On weekdays, Monticello Preschool closes if DeSoto schools close. If the Desoto District is closed only for extreme cold, the director of the Monticello Preschool will determine if the Preschool remains open.  The church buildings will be closed and daytime activities will become remote if the Monticello Preschool is closed for inclement weather. Afternoon and evening activities will be on a TBD basis. 


Saturdays will be handled on an event by event basis.


On Sundays, a decision will be made by 8:00 AM and communicated to the congregations. If worship is cancelled, the sermon for each service will be streamed at the regular times (9:00 AM on LifeBridge’s Facebook page and 10:30 AM on Monticello’s YouTube channel).
