Inclement Weather Procedure

If schools must be delayed or closed due to inclement weather or other emergencies, an announcement will be made via:

  • SDoL Mobile App (free download)
  • Facebook @ SDoLPA
  • Twitter @ SDoLancaster
  • Website
  • WGAL News 8

In the event of a school closing, we will make the decision as early as possible to provide adequate time for notification. Decisions are based on the current and anticipated forecast, and both sidewalk and road conditions. Parents and guardians should plan to provide a place for children to stay when a school closes or an early dismissal is necessary.
