SCHOOL CLOSINGS & DELAYS

The West York Area School District takes the safety and well-being of our students very seriously. Occasionally, inclement weather or an emergency will cause the district to close school, delay the start of school, or send students home early. Parents and employees will be notified of such changes in the following manner:

  • Automatic Calling System (ACS) 
    Parents/Guardians and employees will be contacted via phone. Please be sure to keep your telephone number(s) current with the district to ensure you will receive timely information about school closings, delays, and/or emergency situations.

If schools are announced as beginning one hour late, all buses will be delayed one hour. If schools are announced two hours late, all buses will be delayed two hours.

Please note the Inclement Weather/Emergency Make-Up Days on the district calendar. Attendance is expected on all Make-Up Days.
