Winter Weather Statement

Please remember that Propel Montour does not have school delays. Propel Montour will only close school if Pittsburgh Public Schools close for a day based on weather concerns. All three local networks, WPXI, KDKA, and WTAE, will be updated if a school closing does take place. Also, an Alert Now phone call will be made and an email will be sent. Please contact the school if you have questions regarding our winter weather procedures.

***Updated Jan. 26, 2014 - As the question continues to arise, we wanted to address why at Propel Montour we do not delay school. Since Propel does not provide transportation, we open at the normal starting time because for students that can get to the school we know they will be car riders and not outside exposed to the weather. This gives parents that are capable a chance to have a normal day of their own, giving their child a full school day. At the same time we obviously respect and support the delays of all our sending school districts, and will never mark a student late when they come via a bus from a district that has delayed.

It is extremely unlikely that we would not know about a Pittsburgh Public Schools closure prior to the Propel Montour start time of 8 AM. As PPS even says on their website, they try to make their decision by 5 AM. This information can be found on their website at If they start with a two-hour delay, and then choose to close, this will therefore likely happen by 7 AM and an Alert Now from us would immediately be sent. We hope this further clarifies our policy.
