School Closing Policy
In the event of inclement weather or an emergency situation, the school district may be closed, have a delayed start, and/or be forced to dismiss early for safety reasons. Any compromise of the normal operations of the school as noted above shall result in announcements being made over radio stations WARM (Am 590/Scranton), WPEL (FM 96.5/Montrose), WAAL (FM 99/Binghamton), WEMR (AM 1460/Tunkhannock), and WINR (AM 680/Binghamton); and television station WNEP (Channel 16/Scranton) and the Susquehanna County Career & Technology Center Web Page (www.scctc-school.org).
In many homes, both parents are employed. An emergency dismissal can result in children going home when no adults are there. The same situation can arise when parents, who are usually at home, must be away for even an occasional day. This is a source of great concern, not only to parents, but also to school administrators. In the event of such emergencies, we wish to emphasize the importance of parents making advance arrangements for their children. These plans for temporary care should be clearly explained to the children, so that they will have no questions as to where they should leave the school bus on emergency days. The arrangements should also be clearly understood by the family who agrees to keep your children. All extracurricular/after school activities will be cancelled if the school is closed or dismissed early for inclement weather or an emergency.
