During inclement weather (ice, snow, flood) the school will be closed if radio or TV reports indicate that the Lower Dauphin School Districtis closed. Individual school buildings are not generally mentioned.

In the event of a morning delay, students are to report to their classrooms based on the delay time broadcast over radio and television stations and on the district’s Informaline (566-5320 or 944-1668).

However, kindergarten classes will be scheduled as follows:

For a one-hour delay, morning kindergarten is to report one hour later. Afternoon kindergarten is to report at the regular time.
For a two-hour delay, a modified kindergarten schedule will apply to all kindergarten students. Morning kindergarten students will report two hours after the regular start time the same as all other students. They will be in the classroom for one hour and 45 minutes. Then, there will be a one hour break. All afternoon kindergarten will report for one hour and 45 minutes. The schedule for modified kindergarten is as follows:

Information also can be obtained by calling the district’s information hotline, known as Informaline. The phone number for Informaline is 566-5320 and 944-1668. Informaline is a recorded message with information about the status of the school day.
