Closings, Late Starts and Dismissals

If you do not receive the Superintendent notifications about closings, late starts, and dismissals, please notify your students' building secretary to update your information.

When bad weather or emergencies make it necessary to close schools, the administration will be using the School Messenger phone messaging service to notify parents of a school closing or delay. This system enables all parents/guardians of students to receive a phone call from the District within minutes of the decision being made to close schools.

Please do NOT call the school district or school buildings. A rush of calls jams district phone lines and prevents emergency calls from being made.

School closing information will also be available on the District website at (home page and on this page) or by checking the television stations listed below.


  • WFMZ Channel 69 (Allentown)
  • NBC Channel 10 (Philadelphia)

New 3-hour delayed opening schedule.
NOTE: Sometimes the road conditions do not improve sufficiently enough to send buses safely into the outlying rural areas of our district. Therefore, please be advised that a decision to delay the opening of school may later be changed to a closing. In that case, parents will receive a second phone call with updated information.
