In the event school closes or is opening late because of weather, you will receive a telephone call advising you of the status via the electronic phone system. Please be aware, as the call is an electronic one, there is a slight delay before you hear the message. The school’s status will also be posted on local TV stations. St. Dorothy School generally follows the action taken by the Upper Darby School District.
If you hear any announcements about Archdiocesan schools, disregard them; they are referring to Philadelphia schools only.
If there is an emergency school closing, you will be notified in the same manner and your children will be dismissed according to the directions you gave us on the Emergency Contact form.
Please keep in mind that one of the biggest factors in assessing if the school will be closed due to weather conditions is busing. St. Dorothy School has students from multiple school districts that are taken into consideration. A decision will be made based on everyone's safety, as early as possible. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
