Inclement Weather Policy/Text Consent Form
In the event of inclement weather and/or any other emergency that would require Child Steps to close or open later than our regularly scheduled hours, both locations usually follow the appropriate local school district’s snow closings/delayed openings/early dismissals (Havertown will follow the Haverford Township School District and Broomall will follow the Marple-Newtown School District).
Parents in both locations will be notified via email of any delays/closings/early dismissals. In addition, the Havertown location will send an optional text alert to notify parents of any changes in case of questionable weather.
If either district calls for a one (1) or two (2) hour delay, Early Care will be cancelled and school will open at 9am for the regular school day. If weather conditions indicate a possibility of snow during the school day, please be prepared for a potential early dismissal and make appropriate arrangements to pick-up your child. If we decide to close early, please look out for an email and/or text alert (texts for Havertown parents only).
HAVERTOWN PARENTS ONLY: If you’d like to be included in our mobile notification service, please fill out the following form. Remember, you can opt out of our texts by replying to one of our messages with “STOP”.
