When school is cancelled or delayed a Parent Alert will be sent via text message, voice message, and/or email. If inclement weather falls on a satellite day
On Wednesdays or Fridays, no alerts will be sent and no announcements will be made regarding University Model® students. They should follow the regular satellite plan for that day.
In addition to the Parent Alerts, you may check the school homepage or listen to the following radio stations and watch these television channels for information: WGAL, Fox 43, CBS 21, WJTL 90.3, WDAC 94.5.
Two-Hour Delays: When LCCS operates on a two-hour delay, school offices open at 8 am, and the school day will begin at 10 am. There will be no staff coverage and students must not be dropped off before 9 am. On rare occasions, a few school districts may operate on a one-hour delay. In that case, someone will be at the school starting at 8:30 am to greet the bus for that district. If there are districts with no delay, then a staff member will be present to supervise bus students starting at 7:30 am.
If LCCS closes early due to inclement weather, announcements will be made on the stations listed and posted on the website. If your district closes early, LCCS will send your students home on the bus at the time it arrives at LCCS. Parents will be notified using Parent Alert. Student drivers may leave at the time that their home district dismisses for the day. Parents please use discretion in picking up your children at the school. If school is dismissed early, all after-school athletic practices or events will be cancelled.
Online Snow Days
The first snow day of the year is a day off of school without work. There is an extra day built into the school calendar, so the first snow day will not need to be made up. Up to five online snow days will be implemented after the first cancellation. After six cancellations (1 day off + 5 online snow days), make-up days will be added in June.
Lower School: Classroom teachers will email plans for online snow days directly to the parents.
Middle & Upper School: For the online snow days, teachers will edit the lesson plans in ParentsWeb by 9 am. The online snow day work is expected to be completed for the next school day. The only exception to this is if there are power outages due to a storm. Please expect 30-40 minutes of work per core subject for your student.
