Emergency/Inclement Weather Notice
The Seneca Valley School District will make every effort to close or delay school by 5:30 a.m. of the affected school day. Please know that early dismissals will be avoided whenever possible, but if necessary, will be made by 11 a.m. of the affected day.

Weather Closure Notice
- Friday, Feb. 17, 2023 is Snow Makeup Day #1 (this day becomes a school day for our first school closure of the 2022-23 school year; if we don't call a closure, this day becomes a holiday)
- Monday, March 20, 2023 is Snow Makeup Day #2 (this day becomes a school day for our second school closure of the 2022-23 school year; if we don't call a second closure, this day becomes a holiday)
After the above two days are utilized, the District will then shift to remote learning (livestreaming) for any additional cancellations due to weather.
The schedule for livestreaming will occur on a delay so that teachers and students can prepare for livestreaming instruction. Students will be expected to log on to the SV Portal and access the teacher-provided livestreaming link(s) in the Announcements section. Logging in is key as doing so electronically collects student attendance. Inclement Weather School/Class Announcements will be made available for student/parent viewing via the SV Portal after 9:30 a.m. on the day of the closure.

As we have learned, livestreaming can sometimes be disruptive to optimal learning in both the traditional and remote environments. Therefore, we want to ask for your assistance when students are livestreaming:
- Learning Environment – Students should be ready and prepared to learn. Students should be seated at a table or desk free from distractions. The student should not be traveling in a car or livestreaming from a loud environment. Please have student supplies readily available.
- Laptop Cameras - Laptop cameras must be turned on (students are permitted to blur their background for privacy).
- Laptop Microphones - Microphones should stay muted until the student needs to speak.
Students unable to livestream due to power outages, childcare needs or illness will be given assistance when they return and time to make up the day’s assignments.
If you have any extenuating circumstances, you may reach out to your child’s individual teacher(s).
