Schools will not be open when it is too dangerous for buses to travel. If school is closed, announcements will be made on all major radio and TV stations in the area. In addition, timely messages will be placed on the district website (crsd.org) and on the district cable channel (Comcast channel 28 or Verizon channel 44) plus you will receive a pre recorded district call.
When conditions warrant, there may be a delayed opening or an early dismissal. Delayed openings are 1-3 hours; AM kindergarten is cancelled on these days. Early dismissals can be called for excessive rain, snow or heat. In addition to the public announcements, Global Connect will contact parents (who have signed up for it) in the event of an early dismissal.
Parents will not automatically be contacted unless they sign up to be included in the phone notification.

The Pennsylvania School Code requires school districts to provide “like” services. Since CR has 5 early dismissal days, it will honor and provide transportation to non public schools on 5 days. These days are chosen by the non public school prior to the start of the school year. All early dismissals on the official calendar of special education schools are required by law to be honored.
Council Rock’s early dismissal times are as follows:
High schools – 10:45 AM;
Middle schools – 11:30 AM
Elementary schools – 12:15 PM
On CR early dismissal days there is no kindergarten transportation. Kindergarten students will ride the regular afternoon buses home.
