Early Dismissal Policy

The Montoursville Area School District Board of School Directors has delegated discretionary authority to the administration to dismiss school early in the event of an emergency. Parents are advised that arrangements should be made to ensure that their children will receive proper supervision if they are returned to their homes earlier than usual. It is suggested that working parents make arrangements with neighbors, relatives or friends to care for their children in the event parents will not be home. In addition, parents should review the contingency plans with their children to be certain they understand the alternate arrangements.

When the decision is made to close school early, the administration will notify local radio stations (WILQ/WZXR/WBZD/WWPA, KISS/Bill Country/Variety/WRAK, WJSA, WPSU, WGRC) and television stations (WNEP, WYOU and WBRE). Information will also be posted on the school district’s web page: www.montoursville.k12.pa.us.
