Inclement Weather Procedures

snowman pictureCommunication Methods 

In the event of inclement weather or a school emergency that results in early dismissal, late arrival of students or the closing of schools, the district notifies the community via:

  • School Messenger phone call, text message and email. Note: To receive text messages, you must opt in by texting "Y" or "yes" to 67587. (For families with students who currently attend Wissahickon schools only). To ensure that emails don't go into your spam filter, mark the email address, as a safe sender.  
  • WSD Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
  • Pop-up message on the district homepage
  • TV Stations 3, 6, 10 and 29
  • KYW NewsRadio - School Closing Number 314

*Please note: schools are open unless otherwise notified via the methods above. Periodically, review your contact information (phone and email) listed in Infinite Campus as this information is used for School Messenger - our school notification system.

WSD is very sensitive to how much impact the decision to open or close schools in bad weather can have on families. While we know that students are better served, both academically and socially, by being in school, our top priority is always the safety of our students.
