EMERGENCY SCHOOL CLOSING-DELAYS

 

Dear Parent/Guardian:

 

As the winter season approaches, our thoughts turn to cold, snowy weather and the possibility of school cancellations, delays and emergency early dismissals. 

Please note:

§        Students are to delay their arrival time and bus schedule by the length of the delay.

§        Breakfast will be served if there is a  1-hour delay.

§        A continental breakfast will be served if there is a 2-hour delay.

§        In the event of a one(1) or two (2) hour delay, all buses run according to the length of the delay.

§        In the event of an early dismissal due to bad weather, we will activate our phone chain to try to get in touch with someone for each student. Decisions for Early dismissals will be made no later than 11:00 a.m.

§        It is important that we have your current home phone number, this is the number that is called in the event of an early dismissal.

§        Please make arrangements with a relative or neighbor to meet your child at your home if you are unable to be there.

§        Dismissals will be at the regular times, except in extreme circumstances, and if the District has enough time to contact the radio stations and parents.

 

School delays, cancellations and emergency early dismissals will be announced on the following radio and television stations:

WTAE, KDKA, WPXI.

They will also be posted on the Districts website- www.goldenrams.com.

 

Please tune in to these stations for the announcements.  We will be listed as HighlandsSchool District.  We ask that you do not call the school to find out if there is a delay or cancellation.
