Emergency School Closing and Delayed Opening

In the event of an emergency closing for the school, KYW 1060 AM will broadcast the announcement on the radio and possibly list it on its website (www.kyw1060.com) and/or the announcement will appear on the School District of Philadelphia’s website (www.philasd.org).

If there is a citywide closing of all public schools, especially during the winter months, KYW 1060 AM will report that all Philadelphia public schools are closed. The announcement will also appear on its website (www.kyw1060.com) and/or the School District of Philadelphia’s website (www.philasd.org).

The school strongly suggests that parents/guardians listen to KYW 1060 AM each morning, especially during the winter months, to be informed about emergency school closings or delayed opening due to weather.

Please refrain from calling the school office to find out if school is closed. The phone lines are needed during this time to communicate with the faculty and the School District of Philadelphia.
