Delay & Closing Information

The decision to delay or close school is one that we take very seriously. The District must take into account road and weather conditions, temperature and wind-chill factors, as well as the forecast. Typically, the decision to delay or close school is made by 6:00 a.m. However, there are occasions when changing weather and road conditions may necessitate a later decision.
School delays and closings are:

Two-Hour Delay Information

Report Times
Middle & High School: 10:00 AM
Elementary Schools: 10:45 AM
Breakfast is not served on 2-hour delay days.

Parkway and/or Quaker Valley 2-Hour Delay
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 closings are effective for one day. If the schools are to remain closed for a second day, another announcement will be posted.
