School Closing Information
Frankford Friends School follows the School District of Philadelphia’s emergency closing schedule in the case of inclement weather, excessive heat warnings, or other health and safety emergencies. Parents are responsible for keeping track of emergency closing updates from the Philadelphia School District. If the Philadelphia School District is closed to students, then FFS is closed to students.
Ways to check on Philadelphia School District closings are:
- KYW Radio (1060 AM)
- KYW information hotline, 215-400-INFO (4636)
- Philadelphia School District’s Twitter feed
- Philadelphia School District’s web site
If school must close early because of weather or another emergency, FFS will send out an automated phone message via Parent Alert to the cell numbers listed (or home number if no cell is listed) as belonging to the primary caregivers on each student’s emergency contact form, and an email to the people listed as belonging to the primary caregivers on each student’s record. Upon receiving an automated message or other notification, parents must pick up their children from school as soon as possible. Bus riders will be placed on the bus unless other directions have been given to the school.
