Winter Weather Updates

Snow is bound to hit NPSD this winter! When the weather outside is frightful, NPSD Superintendent Dr. Curt Dietrich is very busy consulting with various school district departments, other school districts and weather outlets to assess conditions and whether school needs to be delayed, dismissed or cancelled. It is not an easy job.

On snowy mornings, Dr. Dietrich (if he sleeps at all) is awake for a conference call before 5 am. It is NPSD's hope that school delays and closings will be decided and posted via district communication channels by 5:30 am. In some challenging situations, that may not happen but the decision is always made as soon as possible.

It is important to note that district communication channels are always updated first. For the most accurate, up-to-date information, we recommend the following in order:

  • Tune into North Penn Television (NPTV) on Comcast Cable channel 28 and Verizon FiOS channel 29 for the fastest information concerning delays and closings.

  • Visit the main page of our website, as closing/delay information will always be posted in the "Announcements" section.

  • Like NPSD on Facebook or follow NPSD on Twitter to see posts about closing/delay information.

  • Tune in to local radio and television stations and listen for school closing number 303 for NPSD. Please note, NPSD cannot guarantee the timeliness of their posting of the information.

In situations when schools are dismissed early, all of the above-mentioned communication tools are used in addition to using the emergency messenger system. Because of this, it is very important to keep your contact information up to date with your school's office and on the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.
