Emergency School Closing and ParentLink Messages
A decision to close school or have a late start due to inclement weather is usually made prior to 6:30 a.m. As soon as the decision is made, parents will receive a ParentLink message on their home phone or designated primary phone. Announcements are also made on local radio and TV stations as well as on our district webpage. Additionally, a notification is pushed to our Exeter Township SD IOS (Apple) and Android app, Facebook, and Twitter.
