Closings and Delays
HMS has a Parent Alert System for emergency or weather-related communication. Announcements are typically sent between 6 am and 9 pm. If school is cancelled in the early morning hours or dismissed early due to inclement weather, announcements will also be posted at the following locations:
- Hinkletown Mennonite School Facebook Page
- Top notification bar of the school website
- WDAC FM Radio 90.3
- WJTL FM Radio 94.5
- WGAL Local TV Channel 8
Pre-K families may receive extra communication from their teacher by email as it pertains to specifics of the program that day.
HMS generally follows the cancellations of Eastern Lancaster County, Cocalico and Ephrata Area School Districts. However, since HMS has its own bussing system that picks up students from their homes, there may be times that HMS will make a cancellation decision independent of the area districts. The primary determining factor is safety on the roads.
