Emergency Closing Procedure
If it is necessary to cancel or delay school due to inclement weather, we will contact you directly through the Student Management System. For accuracy in contacting you, you must provide the school with the current phone number where you can be reached. It is also necessary for you to inform us as to your wishes in the event of an early dismissal – whether you wish your child/children to remain at school until you arrive, or if they will take the bus as usual. Weather related changes to the schedule will also be announced on WGAL News 8.
We will follow the cancellation schedule of Southern School District most times. If Southern Schools close early due to inclement weather, we will close early also. For students outside of Southern, we will dismiss those students according to their home schools.
Preschool - Please Note: If the school has a two hour delay, we will follow a “modified schedule” for the Preschool classes. All classes will begin at 11:00 AM & dismiss at 1:00 for PK3 and 2:00 PM for PK4. (Please pack a bag lunch on these days!)
