Pickerington Schools announces delayed starts and calamity days using:

1. Phone and email alerts

Pickerington Schools will announce delayed starts and calamity days through pre-recorded telephone calls to current parent/guardians' telephone numbers on file with the district.

The district also sends email messages about any delayed start or calamity day via this website.

It is important to keep student contact information and contact preferences current by logging into the Infinite Campus Parent Portal website and updating your contact information.

2. The district's website and social media channels

Information about delayed starts and calamity days will be posted on the home page of the district’s website, Facebook page, and Twitter.

3. Television and radio stations

Pickerington Schools shares any delayed start and calamity day information with local television and radio stations. However, we recommend that parents and students confirm delay and cancellation information received from media outlets on the district’s social media channels or this website. 

Each local television station offers a delayed start and school cancellation text message program that sends delay/closure information directly to your phone.
