Delays & Closures Due to Inclement Weather

2-Hour Delays
Steel Center will go on a 2-hour delay based on:
  1. Safety: If road conditions in our immediate area (as well as snow removal on the Steel Center campus) jeopardizes the safety of our students and staff.
  2. When a significant percentage of our students attend districts that are on a 2-hour delay. (example: If all districts are on a 2-hour delay except for Elizabeth Forward and West Jefferson Hills, 79% of Steel Center students are operating under a modified day). 
    • Delays could be based on either hazardous conditions caused by precipitation or extreme temperatures.
    • Steel Center will make this decision by 6:15 AM.
    • When Steel Center is on a 2-hour delay, we will follow the Modified 2 Hour Delay Schedule.
 
Closing School
Steel Center will close school based on:
  1. Safety: If road conditions in our immediate area (as well as snow removal on the Steel Center campus) jeopardizes the safety of our students and staff.
  2. When a significant percentage of our students attend districts that are closed or on a remote learning day due to weather or other safety reasons. (example: If all districts are closed or on a remote learning day delay except for Clairton and South Park, school for 87% of Steel Center students is closed or on remote). 
    • Closing Steel Center would be based on either hazardous conditions caused by precipitation or extreme temperatures.
    • This decision may be made by 6:15 AM, or it could be made in conjunction with a 2-hour delay in which the status would change from a delay to closing. 
    • When Steel Center is closed, we will use make-up days that are listed on the 2022-2023 school calendar.
