In anticipation of the winter snow storm expected to impact the Philadelphia region Thursday, Feb. 18 the School District of Philadelphia will close all buildings tomorrow, including all Family Technology Support Centers, Specialized Services Regional Centers, District headquarters at 440 North Broad Street and all school buildings. These closures will allow for the safe clearing of snow from all roadways and walkways on District properties.

With all instruction taking place digitally, there will not be a need to issue a “snow day,” so digital learning and instruction will continue as planned. Although the Tech Support Centers will be closed, families and staff can use the Tech Support hotlines by calling 215-400-5555 (staff) and 215-400-4444 (families) if necessary.

All staff designated as essential personnel during inclement weather will be contacted by their supervisor with reporting instructions, and will be compensated according to the provisions of their collective bargaining agreements, if applicable. All other staff are expected to safely work from home.

The District will continue to work closely with the city’s Office of Emergency Management to monitor weather and road conditions, and will provide updates if additional changes are expected.
