Snow Delay & Cancellation Guidelines
Individual school districts notify local radio and television stations concerning delays and closing of classes and/or schools. You should watch and listen for information announced on television/radio stations that pertain to your school district of residence and the school district in which your child’s school building is located. Lincoln Intermediate Unit #12 will no longer announce closings or delays for I.U. 12 classes with the exception of York Learning Center.
- If the school district in which you live is closed OR the school district in which your child’s building is located is closed, your child will stay home that day.
- If the school district in which you live AND the district in which your child’s building is located are both open, you will follow the delay schedule of the district in which your child‘s building is located OR your home district, whichever time is later.
- Preschool-If your child attends an AM preschool class and the district in which their school building is located is delayed or the school district in which you reside is delayed, then AM preschool for your child will be canceled for that day.
- YLC-If your child attends school at the York Learning Center, you should watch for announcements specific to York Learning Center or AM announcements for your school district of residence.
Please be aware that due to the possibility that routes may transport students from more than one school district, the times for pick-up and drop off may vary from the announced times. You should check with your child’s driver to see if this will pertain to you.
Since LIU vehicles transport students directly to and from their homes, we travel roads and lanes that regular school buses do not use. We rely on the judgment of the bus/van drivers about specific road conditions on which they travel to safely transport the students. On such occasions some students may need to be excused from attendance.

Please keep in mind that our drivers will do the best they can to remain on schedule during bad weather, but they may run late. Safety is our priority. Drivers will not attempt to enter icy or unplowed roads or driveways. Drivers may request that you meet them at the end of the driveway or a different stop if the roads aren’t drivable.
