Our PRIMARY method of reaching parents and guardians is the District’s automated messaging system. This is utilized to share information with parents’ or guardians’ home number and/or any alternative numbers provided for this purpose.
In addition, school closures, school delays, early dismissals, and late buses will be announced over WGAL-TV (Channel 8), FOX43, CBS21, and ABC-27 as well as the following radio stations: WITF (89.5FM), WSBA (910AM), WARM (103FM), WGET (1320AM), and WGTY (107.7) FM.
We also use Twitter, Facebook and email blasts to send important, time-sensitive information. Please make sure your child's school office has your correct contact information for all communication modes, especially phone numbers and emails.
Please refrain from calling individual schools so that phone lines may remain open for emergency communications.
Please Note: If the announcement is for a two-hour delay of school, all buses will be delayed two hours respectively.
Delayed openings are generally for two hours. The district must operate a "Modified Kindergarten Schedule" in order to make available both an AM and PM Kindergarten session:
- the AM Session is 10:25 AM to 12:15 PM
- the PM Session is 1:25 PM to 3:15 PM
If the district closes due to weather, all HOME sporting and co-curricular events are considered postponed until further notice. Any AWAY events may be subject to the host district’s decision.
