Happy New Year to you ALL! As you are well aware, 2018 has greeted us with bitter cold temperatures making this a crazy week. The safety and welfare of our students, staff and families is my primary concern during challenging weather conditions. Weather delays/cancellations will occur if road conditions or temperatures are determined to be unsafe. It seems as though the temperature has been the culprit thus far. The National Weather Service has criteria for each county in PA for calling a Wind Chill Advisory. If the Wind Chill (combination of real temperature and wind speed) is -10 degrees Fahrenheit or lower in Allegheny County, the National Weather Service issues a Wind Chill Advisory. In that incident, the District will consider operating on a 2 hour delay.
As a District, we will continue to keep you posted as information is received and confirmed. Thank you, in advance, for your understanding.
