Inclement Weather Procedures

Inclement Weather Procedures

Dear Parents/Guardians:

This is to remind you that MaST Community Charter School will close on the same days as the School District of Philadelphia due to inclement weather or other citywide emergency.  MaST may also opt to close independent of any decision made by the School District of Philadelphia. 

The school will send out a notice via the Remind Text Alert System regarding any updates for closures or delays. (Text @mastcsi to 81010 to subscribe)

Also, you may check the following sources for information:

  • School website and social media outlets (
  • KYW News Radio, Channel 3 (CBS), Channel 10 (NBC), and Channel 6 (WPVI)
  • MaST Announcements email list

Two Hour Delay:

If MaST is identified as a school following a two-hour delay, Grades K to 8 will begin the school day at 10:15 a.m., and grades 9 to 12 will begin the school day at 9:40 a.m. Students will not be granted entry into the school building until 9:00 a.m. 

For children riding yellow buses to school, if your child’s normal pick-up time is 7:00 a.m., the pick-up time would then change to 9:00 a.m. If there is a two-hour delay due to weather, the Before Care program will be cancelled for that morning.

Early Dismissals

At any time due to inclement weather, we may have to dismiss the students early from school. If there is an emergency early dismissal, the After Care program will close at 4 p.m.  Please make emergency backup plans for your child to ensure they get home safely.        

Thank you,

MaST Administration & MaST Schools Network Team
