School Closing Information

Saint Joseph the Protector School’s closing number is 356.  Abington Township’s school closing number is 301.  Decisions regarding school closings, late arrivals or early dismissals due to inclement weather or emergencies of any kind are usually governed by Abington/Cheltenham School Districts and their transportation offices.  Saint Joseph the Protector School uses KYW 1060 News Radio and TV Channel 3 exclusively to broadcast our closing numbers


In the event that school will be opening with a two hour delay, our school day will start at 10:00 AM, Before Cares will start at 9:30, only for those that are registered for Morning Cares.    



Special Programs

In addition to our regular curriculum, children will enjoy experiences in Technology, Music, Library, and Physical Education.  Art is integrated throughout the early childhood program.

Parking is available in the school yard adjacent to the school building.  Vehicles may not be left on West Avenue during arrival or dismissal times.


  •          Students should enter the building via the front door of the school on West Avenue
  •          Parents should accompany the child into their classroom in the morning
  •          Parents should pick up their child in the classroom at 2:30 PM unless remaining for after-care

We will provide snacks for the children.  As there may be children in our classes who may have a peanut allergy, no peanut butter or food containing nuts will be served at school.



You will provide your child’s lunch including their beverage. 


For parents of half-day students, who wish to take advantage of lunch bunch on any given day, please refer to the information contained in the financial information section of this brochure.
