CBSD Inclement Weather Procedures

The announcement of school delays and closings will go out to families through the Remind App via text and email, it will be posted to the district’s website and Facebook page, as well as reported on the following local radio and television stations:

  • FM Radio

    • WARM 103.3

    • WDAC FM 94.5

    • WRVV FM 97.3

    • WJTL FM 90.3

  • Television

    • WGAL

    • ABC 27

    • CBS 21

    • FOX 43

  • Other Communication

    • CBSD Website

    • Facebook

    • LancasterOnline

If possible, decisions to delay or close schools will be made no later than 6:30 a.m. in order to provide families adequate time to be notified and to seek and find daycare and alternative family plans, if needed.  Early notification also allows our transportation, maintenance, and food service teams to prepare for necessary adjustments and modifications.

However, please be aware that while we may make the decision before 6:30 a.m., it will take time to update the radio, television and other communication channels, as well as for the media outlets to post this information.  We will work as quickly as possible, but please keep in mind that all local school districts, businesses, non-profit organizations, etc., are also contacting these media outlets during the same time period. 

We always keep the safety of our students and staff at the forefront of our decision-making. Still, we all know that weather forecasts can be unpredictable.  As we head into the winter season, please remember to always check our website, and Facebook to receive up-to-date information on closings and delays.

Types of Potential Closures/Delays


We will update the calendar on our website with make-up days and the tentative date of our last student day of school during inclement weather and if makeup days are needed.  Please be aware that our last student day could change due to unpredictable months of weather and school days off.
