Emergency Closing Procedures
The T/E School Closing Hotline phone number is 610-240-1970.
If it is necessary to close school due to inclement weather, local radio stations will announce school district numbers. Tredyffrin/Easttown’s school number is “Chester County #854.” You may also call the school district closing information number at (610)240-1970.
TE All-Call is an automated phone notification system that will quickly call parents with a recorded message in the event of a weather-related school closing, early dismissal, late opening or any other unscheduled closing, cancellation or emergency situation.
TE All-Call will send a recorded message to parents at a specific school in the event of an emergency or closing at their school. All parents in the District will be notified of District-wide closings or emergencies.
All numbers on file will be called even if the first call is answered. The system will leave a voicemail or answering machine message if no one answers the phone. If you use the same phone numbers for more than one child, duplicate numbers will only be called once.
The elementary schools will receive a computerized report indicating which calls were answered, went to an answering machine/voicemail or were busy or unanswered.
We request that you review emergency procedures with your child in the event school is closed early and you will not be home. (Please note that school is sometimes cancelled or dismissed early due to reasons other than weather [Loss of water, heat, electricity, etc]. Please be sure your child knows your emergency plan.)
Additional Information of Two-hour Delayed Openings
When openings are delayed two hours, the following procedures have been established for operating the elementary schools. Most of the guidelines pertain to the kindergarten program since that is the area most affected by a two-hour delayed opening.
