The Plum Borough School District’s first priority is to keep our students and staff safe. Therefore, calling weather-related delays and cancellations are taken very seriously. We will always keep the safety of our students and staff in the forefront of all decisions.
We are aware that when a Flexible Instructional Days (FID), cancellations or delays occur, we are impacting childcare plans, and the work-related commitments of our families. We further recognize there are some families who have differing opinions for when cancellations should occur. Any decisions are based on the information that we have at the time a decision is made.
In the event that a FID is called, it will be referred to as a “remote learning day” on the mass media outlets that are identified below. Students will learn at home by logging into their Google Classroom for a day of asynchronous learning. On the 2nd consecutive FID, we will move to synchronous learning, and will remain in that mode of instruction until we return to school. The District has received approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Education for the use of five (5) FID days. If all five (5) FID’s are used in a school year, any additional make-up days will be identified and communicated promptly.
How are parents and residents alerted to a delay or closing?
