The Philadelphia School will be closed on Friday, February 14th.

Dear TPS Families,

We had hoped that we would have school today.  As the Student Council mentioned in their email to families yesterday, “We are hopeful that we will be back at school. Think . . . school tomorrow!”

Today’s closure means that The Philadelphia School has had four and half snow days to date.   

We have made the decision to add an instructional day to our 2013-2014 school year.  Please mark your calendars:  TPS will have an additional school day on the regularly scheduled Professional Development day on April 28.   

If we have additional snow days this year, we will look at other possibilities for making them up.  In addition, we are reviewing the 2014-2105 calendar to ensure we have flexibility just in case we have another winter like we have experienced this year.

A few special activities were missed this week. When we return next Wednesday, we will:

  • Celebrate Valentine’s Day in those classrooms that planned a card exchange.  (The preschool breakfast has been canceled.)
  • Reschedule the Talent Show for Friday, February, 28.  More details to come…

Thank you for your flexibility and support.  Please join us in thinking spring and summer thoughts! 

With warm wishes for a Happy Valentine’s Day,  

Justine
