School Closings and Delays

Just as a reminder, in the event of a two hour delay, morning activities at MES are cancelled. This includes ensembles that typically meet at 8:00AM.

Also, kindergarten parents - please be mindful of the modified schedule for kindergarten when there is a school day:

AM Kindergarten: 11:00AM - 12:45PM

PM Kindergarten: 1:45PM - 3:30PM

In the event that North Allegheny Schools are closed because of snow or other emergency conditions, the official announcement is provided on the NA website and is also placed on NATV Cable and communicated to local television stations.

Families should also receive notification through the District's School Messenger system. Please make sure your contact information is up-to-date.

Outdoor Recess

As the temperatures fluctuate and become colder, it is important that students come to school prepared for outside recess. Students will go outside as many days as possible unless it is raining or when the temperature/wind chill is below approximately 20 degrees.
