Families of East Allen County Schools,

The weather this year has been kind to us as far as delays and cancellations. However, I just want to take a moment to thank all of the early morning drivers from our transportation department. They get up before 5:00 AM to go out and start driving and checking the conditions of streets, roads, and additions. Then, as a team we monitor the current conditions along with what is predicted to happen. Delaying or cancelling school is never an easy decision. East Allen County Schools is blessed to cover 344 square miles. Sometimes it is foggy in one part of our District but another part is perfectly clear. I just want to assure all of you that we don’t make these decisions lightly. We worry about our walkers, car riders with guardians, high school drivers, bus riders and staff. We greatly appreciate your support as we continue to navigate through the winter season.

When there is the potential for hazardous weather conditions, please check our website, District Facebook page, or tune into the television/radio to hear weather related school delays or cancellations. As a reminder, EACS teachers are expected to post eLearning activities on the day of a closing by 9:00 a.m. Students are expected to participate in eLearning on days when we cancel. If you have questions regarding this, please contact your child’s teacher or school’s administration.

I am also including the weather decision flowchart as a reminder how East Allen County Schools makes our decisions. (Please refer to Delay/Closing Chart below.) Along with that you will see the wind-chill chart. East Allen County Schools (EACS) uses the hourly temperature and wind chill predictions from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Weather Service. Delay or closing decisions are considered when frostbite occurs in thirty (30) or less minutes. When these conditions are predicted to occur at 7:00 a.m., the District will strongly consider a delay for the start of school. If the conditions continue to occur at 9:00 a.m., the District will strongly consider closing schools. (Please refer to the Wind Chill Chart below.)

  • Tuesday, February 11, 2020 – District-wide In-service Day (Scheduled eLearning Day for students and staff)

Again as always, if you need any help or support, please feel free to contact your student’s school or the central office. We are here to help!
