Loving Care Weather Delays and Emergency Closings

Last Updated: 3/10/2022 8:36 PM
Closings
When Pike Township schools are closed due to inclement weather or emergency conditions, the Loving Care program will also be closed. 
 
Delays
When school is delayed due to inclement weather or emergency conditions, Loving Care will open at 6:30 a.m. at all locations, and remain open until school begins.  Students who are enrolled in the morning session of Loving Care may attend on a snow delay day.  Additional charges will apply (see below).
 
Please note that if a school delay is called and your child is dropped off in before school care, and school is subsequently cancelled due to worsening weather conditions, our staff will contact you and ask that you pick up your child.
 
Due to staffing constraints, students who are not enrolled in the morning session of Loving Care are not eligible to attend before school on a snow delay day.
 
Early Dismissal
In the event of an early dismissal due to inclement weather, Loving Care will open at the time of dismissal and remain open until 6:00 p.m. (unless a county snow emergency is declared).  On early dismissal days due to inclement weather, our staff will expect only those students who normally attend the after school session of Loving Care.  (No additional charges will apply).
 
Due to staffing constraints, students who do not normally attend the afternoon session of Loving Care are not eligible to attend after school on a weather-related early dismissal day.
