When school is closed for an emergency or weather

  • In the event it becomes necessary to close school, delay the opening of school or dismiss early, an announcement will be made as follows:

    • Voice Message to the phone number in your Skyward Account
    • Post at Penn-Delco webpage www.pdsd.org
    • Posts on Penn-Delco social media pages
    • Text to those who have opted in by texting "Y" or "Yes" to our district short code 67587. (By opting in for text messages and setting text as a preference, you can also receive attendance reporting confirmations, as well as other district communication, via text.)
    • Information at news stations including abc, cbs, nbc, fox

    Please do not call the school for information as it ties up the phone lines needed for emergency calls. Parents/guardians should develop an emergency plan with their children so they will know where to go if schools must close unexpectedly.
