Snow Delays & Cancellations

Superintendent's Letter:

The safety and welfare of our students, staff and families are our primary concern during challenging weather conditions. Weather delays/cancellations will occur if road conditions or temperatures are determined to be unsafe. The National Weather Service has a 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 Mercer County, the National Weather Service issues a Wind Chill Advisory. When there is a Wind Chill Advisory during morning pick-up time, school will be delayed if temperatures are predicted to rise during the day. If there is a Wind Chill Advisory that will persist all day, then school may be canceled. Early dismissals for any reason other than an extreme emergency will be avoided if possible.
