DV adds Three-Hour Delay option

Delaware Valley is adding a “three-hour delay” to the list of options for weather-related or other types of emergencies requiring a late start.  We wanted to give you plenty of notice so you could plan accordingly. 

Many area districts have three-hour delays and we decided to add this option in case an extra hour might make a difference between opening late or closing. In the middle of winter, an extra hour probably won’t make a difference but in late winter/early spring when the sun starts to rise earlier, it could.  It could also be used when there is a power outage and the utility company needs an extra hour to complete repairs.  Just like on two-hour delays, lunches will be served and dismissal will be at the same times as always.
