In the event of a school delay or closing, information is shared via multiple communication channels including the following:
- The homepage of the MASD website
- Automated calls, emails and texts via Blackboard Connect 5 - calls are typically made between 5 and 6 a.m. The system will call the primary phone number as provided to the district.
- Local TV (KDKA, WTAE and WPXI) and radio stations (Please note that the district does not control how quickly radio and TV stations update their information on-air.)
When schools are closed, all after-school and evening events, athletics and activities are also cancelled unless otherwise noted.
