School Closing & Inclement Weather


  • Emergency school closings, delays or early dismissals due to inclement weather or other unforeseen events will be announced on local radio stations, are posted on many radio and TV websites, and are listed at the bottom of TV screens on most major stations. In the event of an early dismissal from school, every attempt is made to notify parents of an identified emergency contact. The closing number for the Delaware County Intermediate Unit is 515. When listed on websites or on the TV it will usually indicate “Delaware County Intermediate Unit Special Programs.” This information is also posted on the Delaware County Intermediate Unit website, www.DCIU.org.

    In addition, parents should check for information about your home school district. If your home school district is closed, operating on a delayed schedule or an early dismissal schedule, this will impact your child’s transportation to and from school.
