School Delays and Closing
As the weather gets colder and the leaves clog the storm drains, a spectacular science experiment is being conducted right over our heads: liquids are turning to solids! And if it stays cold enough, for long enough, with enough liquid in the air, then piles and piles of those solids will accumulate all around us. Tires will spin, plows will scrape, and folks at The Weather Channel will squeal with delight.
How will everyone know if school’s delayed or cancelled? Because of busing, we follow Pittsburgh Public Schools’ delay schedule. If PPS has a two-hour delay, we have a two-hour delay. Usually, but not always, we follow them for closing as well. However, other districts do not always align their plans with PPS; more detailed instructions are attached. We publish our own delay and closing notices on KDKA, WPXI, and WTAE web and TV services.
This year we will use a text-notification service to complement these other platforms. If you have any questions, please contact us.
