    How You Can Prepare:
    • Be prepared and have a plan in place should there be an early dismissal and your child(ren) should be sent home on short notice. Although rare, early dismissals are a possibility due to weather or emergency situations. Now is the time to develop a plan with your child(ren).

    • Be sure your child knows and understand the plan (Make it simple.). Children will be sent home on their school bus if an unexpected early dismissal occurs. Connect-ED (the district's rapid phone notification) will be activated in the elementary buildings if an early dismissal occurs. Be sure to program (724) 625-7773 as a number that will not be blocked if you have a block on your phone.

    • Be sure to check the website, PR-TV, local radio stations, and or/television stations for cancellations, delays and early dismissals.

    • A rapid notification call will only be made in unusual circumstances (ex: massive power outages and/or early dismissals), so please monitor radio & TV stations.
