Decisions Regarding School Delays
Decisions regarding school delays are based on the conditions for that day.  These decisions are made in consultation with McCarter, Penn Dot and other government agencies that may or may not provide information at the time.

For example, today, January 8, 2018, the inclement weather did not begin until approximately 6:00 AM with rain.  In consultation with McCarter, it was decided that road conditions were more favorable early than they would be 2 hours later.  The decision was made to operate on a regular schedule.  We will continue to work with McCarter to make the best informed decision as weather conditions present at that time.  

It is each parent/guardian's prerogative to choose to keep your child home from school if you should feel the temperature warrants such action. Upon your child's return to school, please issue a written excuse to the building principal's office stating that your child was absent due to the weather. This absence will be considered an "excused" absence. The safety of our students is always our number one priority.
 
Managing Grief and Loss

It is very challenging for us all to face the passing of a young person. Any reaction to the death of a peer is normal and your child’s reaction may range from withdrawal to crying or anger. Your child may also ask questions about loss. We have provided resources below that may be helpful for you as you discuss grief.  Please also consider monitoring and discussing your child’s communication (social media, phone, email, text messaging) to help assess their needs. If you feel your child needs support, please contact his or her school’s Guidance Counselor. The Caring Place is also a valuable resource for grief and loss. Their website is: https://www.highmarkcaringplace.com/cp2/index.shtml.
