Should Parkway West CTC or Quaker Valley have a 2-hour delay, Quaker Valley students do not attend Parkway but come later to the high school.
Parkway students with personal transportation must be at the building by 11:20 for their period 4 class. They will be placed in a study hall during period 3, which comes after period 4 on the two-hour delay schedule.
Parkway students without personal transportation should ride their assigned morning bus (this is different from the AM Parkway bus) and will be placed in study halls during periods when they don't have classes. The QV transportation department should have provided you with the appropriate busing information at the beginning of the school year. If you did not receive this information, please contact Monark Student Transportation at 724-318-8535.
School Closing Information
School closings are effective for one day. If the schools are to remain closed for a second day, another announcement will be posted.
When schools are closed, all after-school and evening activities, sports, and events are also canceled unless posted otherwise.
Flexible Instructional Days
A Flexible Instructional Day (FID) is used as an alternative approach to delivering instruction if a circumstance arises that prevents instruction in the customary manner. FID can be used for up to five (5) days per school year in place of a school day that has been cancelled because of inclement weather or another emergency situation. These days will be utilized only when all of the weather/emergency days built into the District calendar have been used.
On a FID, students will complete learning activities and assignments provided by their teachers at home on the day that otherwise would have been cancelled. Students are to receive appropriate remote lessons and/or activities that can be completed independently outside of school.
