The following is our policy regarding snow days and delays due to inclement weather.

St. Joseph Preschool follows the decisions made by the Fox Chapel Area School District in determining when a 2 hour delay or a cancelled day is in effect. Local television networks (WTAE, WPXI and KDKA) carry this information. You can also get this information on the websites for these stations, and sign up for e-mail alerts. Or, you may call the Fox Chapel Area School District hotline at 412-967-2500.

If Fox Chapel School District has a TWO HOUR DELAY:

Mondays/Wednesdays – Little Dippers
Class time will be 11:00am - 12:00noon

Tuesdays/Wednesdays/Thursdays – Blue Big Dippers
Class time will be 11:15am – 12:45pm

Tuesdays/Thursdays - Red Big Dippers
Class time will be 11:00am - 1:45pm

Enrichment Day - Big Dippers
For delays or closings, Enrichment Day will be rescheduled for another Monday.

Mon./Tues./Wed./Thurs. – Shooting Stars
Class time will be 11:00am – 12:30pm

NOTE: On days that there is a delay, there will not be a snack time. If you are scheduled as parent-of-the-day, we welcome your help in the classroom; you will not need to provide a snack. Exception: the Red Big Dippers will still have their lunch.

If Fox Chapel School District is CLOSED:
All classes will be cancelled for the day.

Please note that two extra days are built into our preschool year. Therefore, if up to two days are missed due to closures, they will not be made up. If more than two days are missed, they will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
