Emergency School Closing
Please do not telephone the schools for emergency closing information. Telephone access becomes very limited.
When the schools in the Northern Lehigh School District will be closed, delayed, or dismissed early because of inclement weather or other emergencies, the official announcement will be made on the following radio/TV stations:
If possible, the announcement will be made on the night preceding the closing. Otherwise it will be made as early as possible on the morning schools will be closed or delayed.

Please Note: There may be a possible update to closing whenever a one or two-hour delay has been called initially. So, please continue to listen or watch for those announcements up until the time your son or daughter must leave for school.

A Guide For Parents With Questions or Concerns
To maintain effective school-parent communications, we suggest the following steps:
  • Contact the school and have your child's teacher or counselor return your call to discuss your concern.
  • If your concern continues, contact the school principal for a discussion.
  • If your questions remain unanswered, or if your concerns continue, contact the Superintendent of Schools at 610-767-9800.
To provide the best programs for children, we need to keep each other informed about our needs and concerns. The schools will welcome and encourage your efforts to help maintain good communications.
