EMERGENCY EARLY DISMISSAL
In the unlikely event of an emergency early dismissal, the following media will be contacted: KDKA, WPXI and WBVP. These stations will make periodic announcements regarding early dismissals. Parents should make plans with their students should an emergency early dismissal occur.
In the event of severely inclement weather or mechanical breakdown, school may be closed or starting time delayed. The same conditions may also necessitate early dismissal. School closing, delayed starting time, or early dismissal will be announced over radio station KDKA (1020 AM), WPXI, and WBVP (1230 AM). Reports in the morning will be between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. If no report is heard, it can be assumed that school will be in session. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL.
Web sites of the local news stations may also provide a listing of school closing or delays. These sites may assist in the announcement of the above mentioned and also local and school activities or events. [Example: http://www.kdka.com, or http://www.wpxi.com ]
