  • The decision to delay the start of school, cancel school, or dismiss school early due to weather conditions is a difficult task and one that is not taken lightly. 

    The decision making process occurs well before the first student is picked up.   The Tyrone Area School District encompasses 167 square miles.  Many of our school buses leave the bus depot 2 hours prior to the start of school and it takes approximately an hour and a half for all buses to complete their routes.  Thus, the decision to delay or cancel must be made prior to bus departure.  Weather reports from various sources such as AccuWeather and the National Weather Service are used to determine expected conditions.  In addition, we communicate with bus contractors, road supervisors from several municipalities, neighboring school districts, and have traveled the roads to assess their condition prior to making a final decision.  Many times the decision is not made until absolutely necessary due to changing weather conditions and reports.  As much information as possible is gathered in an attempt to make the best decision for all stakeholders.  This morning these same procedures were followed in making the decision not to cancel.   At the time the decision had to be made weather reports were calling for the snow to stop or slow down considerably. 

     

    We strive to make well informed decisions utilizing the most relevant information available at the time.  If you, as a parent, are not comfortable sending your child to school due to weather conditions, please keep them home and their absence will be excused upon submission of a signed excuse.

    Changes to parking for the Elementary School

    Pennsylvania State Police is requesting that both sides of Clay Avenue be designated as “No Parking” in front of the Elementary School, thereby eliminating all parking  on Clay Avenue.  Additional Parent Parking will be available along the south side of the Elementary School (near the tennis courts).  All non-school vehicles exiting school property next to the tennis courts will be required to make a right turn only onto Clay Ave from 7:30-8:30 and 2:30 -3:30.  Click here for complete details.
