Dear School District of Philadelphia families,

Due to storm-related street closures impacting public transportation and roadways across the Philadelphia region, the School District of Philadelphia is implementing a two-hour delay today, Thursday, Sept. 2 for all schools with 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. start times.

Due to storm-related power outages, the District will close James Dobson Elementary School and Albert M. Greenfield School. Students and staff are not expected to report to these schools and there will be no digital learning or instruction today.

All Kindergarten half day will proceed as planned. There will be staff at schools to safely welcome students who may have already been en route to their assigned buildings before the two-hour delay was announced. Families should also expect delays for our yellow bus and SEPTA riders whose routes may be impacted by street closures.
