Emergency School Closing

During snow or other inclement weather, the Newark Charter School will independently decide about school closings, late starts or early dismissals, and notify NCS families by phone and email, using the home phone number and email address that the school has on file for each family. (If your number or email has changed, please call the school office and give the new information to the school secretaries so it can be changed in the eschool files.)

When weather forecasts indicate the possibility of hazardous driving conditions or impassable roads, the decision whether to close the school or open late will be made prior to 6:30 a.m. the day of closing.

In addition to the phone call and email, the decision will be announced periodically by the following stations: WDEL, WILM, and TV channel 10.

 Also, the State Department of Education has a web page that lists school closings, whereby parents can look up school closing, late start or early dismissal information for schools in Delaware. You can also sign up through the State of Delaware to be notified via email in the event of inclement weather.
