If you’ve ever received an error notice from your delivery service indicating a “known closure,” then read on for tips for getting your bulletins delivered even if your office is closed for a holiday or school break.
To avoid potential delivery issues, check out our helpful Q&A:
Have you had delivery issues in the past?
Communication goes a long way! Remind delivery drivers that you will be accepting packages during the holiday season, and that they should leave your bulletin delivery even if no one answers the door.
Have you ever been classified as a “known closure”?
Did you know that a simple mention of a day off can trigger a delivery driver to designate your institution as a “known closure”? If this happens, your packages will be placed in a hold trailer with hundreds of other packages, and LPi has no way of releasing them for you. Be sure to remind delivery drivers that LPi material is time sensitive.
Is your church connected to a school? Are you located on the same campus or block?
If the school declares a “closure,” the courier may assume you are also closed, and this will stop all deliveries to your location. Think ahead by considering accepting school deliveries during this time. If that is not possible, we recommend that you ship to a location not affiliated with the church or school, such as the home address of a reliable parish staff member.
