Are You Ready for Winter Weather?
Winter weather is around the corner, do you know where to find school closure information? Click here to watch an informative Spring-Ford Spotlight Video as we review the quickest ways to get up-to-date information on delays and closures.

This year (2021-2022) Spring-Ford Area School District built one Emergency Day into the calendar and planned to utilize Virtual or Flexible Instruction Days (FID) in case of an emergency or snow closure. The district used the Emergency Day on September 2, 2021 following district-wide flooding and power outages. Therefore, April 13, 2022 will change to an In-Person school day.

A Virtual Day or FID will be used in place of a snow day or other unplanned school closure and eliminate the need for a make-up day because students perform classwork at home. On a weather related Virtual Day, students will complete learning assignments provided by the teacher at home through Canvas. Click here to learn more about what to expect on a weather related Virtual Day. District issued devices will be sent home with students in grades K-4 to be proactive if inclement weather prevents a regular return on January 3, 2022.
