Delayed Opening Procedures

Inclement Weather Procedure 

On those occasions when a later starting time will significantly improve weather conditions, North Hanover Township Schools may elect to call a delayed opening.  A notification will be sent via the SchoolMessenger system.  You do not need to sign up or register to receive messages through the SchoolMessenger system, the system is linked directly to the contact information we have in Genesis.

SchoolMessenger also has an app that will allow you to control how you would like to receive messages that are sent through the system.  The app is called SchoolMessenger’s Info Center.  Please visit InfoCenter.SchoolMessenger.com for more information. 

You may also check the district website at www.nhanover.com.  Please disregard any announcements related to a delayed opening on Joint Base MDL. The schools and the Joint Base MDL are separate entities.
