School Delay / Closure / Remote Learning Information 

With winter weather on our doorstep, just a reminder that Alpha School will follow the direction of the North Allegheny School District for school delays and closures. (If NA is not in school, Alpha School will make an independent decision). If Alpha School needs to delay or close school, we will use the Option C system (and post on three local news stations: KDKA, WPXI, and WTAE) to communicate with our families.



Alpha School will follow the direction of the North Allegheny School District. The school will open its doors at 9:15 AM on a two-hour delay. 


  • There is NO Morning Care on days in which school is delayed. 

  • There is NO Swim (for grades K - 3) if school is delayed on a TUESDAY. Students should dress for Gym.

  • There is NO Mass if school is delayed on a FRIDAY. Students are still expected  to dress in Mass attire (white shirts and ties for grades K-8)


If you live in another school district and they differ from what Alpha School is doing,
here is what you need to know:


Alpha School is on a Delay & your home district is on Normal Schedule:

Please do NOT put your child on the bus if Alpha School is delayed as there will likely be no one at the school to meet them upon arrival. Instead, please drive your child to school at the delayed arrival time. (The school will open its doors at 9:15 AM on a two-hour delay.) We understand that this might be inconvenient, but please understand that we want to ensure the safety of our staff as well as our students.

Alpha School is on Normal Schedule & your home district Delays:

This means that your child's busing will be delayed. If you can safely do so, please bring your child to school at the normal time. Your child and your safety are the most important thing, so if the roads near you are unsafe or you need to use busing, you may take the delay and it will not be considered a late arrival or tardy. Please mark in the dismissal system that your child will be arriving on a 2-hour delay with the bus (or call/email the school and inform the secretary so we know to expect your child.)

Alpha School is on a Delay & your home district is Closed:

This means that your child will not have any busing for the entire day, for arrival in the morning or dismissal. Please do your best to get them to school if you can do so safely. Again, first and foremost, we want to keep all our students and families safe. Please note that if your child is unable to attend, it will be marked as an excused absence.

Remote Reminders

  1. Have a designated desk/workspace in the house for them to work in a neutral area.  This area should contain all the items that they may need for live streaming (books, notebooks, printer, paper, pencils, school supplies, etc.).  

  2.  Wear headphones at all times to minimize distractions and help them focus in on class.

  3.  Have their camera on at all times.  If they need to leave the screen for any reason, please ask the teacher's permission just as if they were in a physical classroom.

  4. Participate in class: this includes taking notes, following along, asking/answering questions, and in general staying engaged. 

  5. Be prepared: arrive to class on time and have all materials ready to go.  

  6. Complete assignments and turn them in on time. 

  7. NEVER record a session for any reason.
