Inclement Weather Proceedures
Regular School Closings
On days when the weather forces the closing of schools, emergency closing information will be broadcast on the T/E Information Hotline, local radio stations and TV networks. An automated message will also be sent to parents through the TE All-Call phone notification system. If it is necessary to close schools or delay their opening due to weather or other emergencies, you may obtain the latest information by calling the School Closing Hotline at (610)240-1970.
Weather related closings are also reported on radio station KYW 1060AM.
Our school district number is 854.
In the event of a two-hour delayed opening, school will begin at 11:10 am.
Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, AM and PM kindergarten sessions will follow a modified schedule on days when inclement weather results in a 2-hour delayed opening. Each kindergarten session will be reduced by 1 hour when there is a delayed opening to provide equal instructional time for both sessions. AM kindergarten classes will begin at 11:10 am and will conclude at the modified pick-up time of 1:05 pm. Parents of PM kindergarten students should drop their children off at the modified start time of 1:50 pm. School dismissal time for PM kindergarten students remains at 3:45 pm. As a result, AM kindergarten students who use bus transportation to school will be picked up at their bus stops 2 hours later than usual and PM kindergarten students will ride the bus home at their regularly scheduled time. Parents are asked to make note of the change in the mid-day pick-up and drop-off times on days when there is a 2-hour delayed opening.
Modified Kindergarten Schedule
AM Kindergarten: 11:10 am – 1:05 pm
PM Kindergarten: 1:50 pm – 3:45 pm
In case the need arises to close school suddenly during the school day (due to storm, power failure, etc.) we will initiate our emergency calling system. If you are seldom at home during school hours, it would be advisable to plan emergency procedures with your child.
