MASD Winter Weather Plan

MASD Winter Weather Plan

Dear MASD Families:     

Winter weather is here! As we prepare for the possibility of weather-related delays and closings, we want to make sure families are as prepared as possible.   

If we need to physically close our schools due to weather, we will have a traditional snow day (no school/ no virtual instruction). The day will be made up according to the district calendar.   

Our goal is to maximize in person instruction for our students. However, if we have a particularly bad winter and we must close our schools more than a handful of times, we will consider implementing state approved flexible instruction days (FIDS).  Please be aware that the state limits the number of FIDS that a district can use in any given year.  

If we call a delay, all MASD schools will operate on a two-hour delay schedule.    

  • School delay and closing information will be shared in the following ways:     
  • An alert will be posted to our website.     
  • A call and email will be sent via Skylert.  
  • Social media posts will be made.   
  • Information will be posted to the local news stations (WPXI, WTAE, KDKA).   

Please use our website ( as your official source for information.   

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
