Notifications

School closings or delays due to inclement weather will be determined by Calvary Preschool and Calvary Church administration and will be posted by 7:00AM, if possible. Please check the following information sources for Closings and Delays:

  • Call the Preschool Office at 717-509-6248
  • Check the top of this page. Any weather announcements can be found in a banner there.
  • Watch WGAL News 8 or go to their website at www.wgal.com/weather/closings

In general, CPS will follow Manheim Township’s weather delays and closings. However, CPS may elect to delay or close even when Township has not. Sometimes the storms arrive after Township has made their decision, and CPS determines that it is not safe for our families and staff to travel.

Delays

When there is a delay, Calvary Preschool will start at 11:00AM and run until 1:00PM; the extended classes
will start at 11:00AM and end at 2:00PM.

Closings

If CPS is closed due to weather, we will use the following procedures for make-up days:

  • The first Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday that we are closed WILL NOT be made up.
  • The second Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday that we are closed will be made up the Monday and/or Tuesday on our planned snow days.
