Emergency Closing Information
The Tyrone Area School district may close the school, delay the opening of school, or dismiss school
early for emergency reasons and/or due to inclement weather conditions. This decision is made to
protect the health and safety of students and staff members. School closings are immediately reported
to local radio and television stations as a means of notifying students’ families.
In the event of an early dismissal from school, the district has implemented a phone support system
called School Messenger which will call every parent within an approximate 20 minute period of time to
notify families of the early dismissal. It is imperative that the number provided for this service be
one where a person will be present to get the message. The system cannot connect if a block has
been placed on the telephone for 1-800 #’s.
In the event of an early dismissal from school, students will be transported home according to their
standard arrangements unless otherwise notified. Parents should call the school as soon as possible if
alternative arrangements need to be made.
In the event of a two hour delay due to inclement weather preschool will run on a modified schedule.
Emergency Information will also be posted on the District homepage and Tyrone School District Facebook and Twitter page.
