Gladwyne Elementary: No power, no school today

BREAKING: Gladwyne Elementary in Lower Merion closing early due to power going out, principal says.

Gladwyne Elementary: No power, no school today

This in Monday from Gladwyne Elementary Principal Dr. James R. Johnson. I'm reposting it here in its entirety to get it to you as quickly as possible:

January 6, 2014

Dear Gladwyne Parents/Guardians:

We recently lost power at Gladwyne and are unable to confirm with PECO that power will be restored during the school day. As a result, we will need to dismiss students early today. We regret the inconvenience, but this decision had to be made quickly in the interest of student well-being. Without power, we cannot provide adequate heat and learning conditions for our students.

Dismissal time for students will be 11:50 AM. Regular bus service will be provided.

Please note that teachers will be making phone calls and/or emailing parents to confirm how they want children to be transported home.

All MELC students, both AM and after-care, will be transported to the MELC Center on Haverford Avenue in Wynnewood.

As a result of the power outage, Gladwyne’s phone system is unavailable. To contact the office for an urgent matter in the interim, please call (610) 633-8236.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience.


Dr. James R. Johnson
Principal, Gladwyne Elementary
