School Closings due to inclement weather
Playschool’s Emergency Broadcast Number
for KYW News Radio, 1060 AM
If it is necessary to close Playschool due to snow or icy road conditions, or other weather related issues, families have the following options for accessing school closure information:
Check KYW News Radio’s website at www.kyw1060.com for 1352.
Call KYW’s recorded school closing phone line at (215) 925-1060.
Sign up for the KYW School Closing Text & Telephone Alerts Network.
Listen to KYW News Radio 1060 AM for our number (1352).
Check the websites or watch the following local TV stations: ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox. (On TV our school name will scroll on the bottom of the TV screen.)
Due to Internet challenges experienced in past years, we will NOT be sending e-mail notifications or making Internet postings on our website or on Facebook regarding school closures.
We appreciate your understanding and patience regarding last-minute closures. Forecasts are not always accurate and if we find road travel has become treacherous just before our school day begins, we may have to make a decision to close after families have already begun their drive to school. Please consider registering with KYW for text/telephone alerts (see above) so you have access to last-minute closing notifications while en route to Playschool.
If school has already opened for the day and a decision is made to close early due to road conditions or other issues, families will be notified by telephone to pick up their children.

The Kidstuff Coupon Book Fundraiser comes to a close! In a couple short weeks we sold a total of 26 books and raised $325 for CPH!!! Thank you to all the families and friends of our school who contributed.
By now you should have been contacted by your classroom representative for Spring Auction. Each year we ask that every family donate an item to our largest fundraiser, Spring Auction. The online auction begins on April 13. The Auction volunteers need to enter all items into an online auction system. This takes a lot of time, so we need your donations by April 1. If you need inspiration, check out this list of inside donations ideas. Click here for GiftCertificateTemplateCPHAuction.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
Spring Auction is the social event of the year at Charlestown Playhouse. This event begins with an online auction of goods donated by parents and outside vendors to benefit the school, providing essential funds for operating costs and scholarships. The end of the online auction culminates in a fantastic party that features a live auction of the most coveted bidding lots. Spring Auction is when the Playschool community comes together to celebrate the hard work and dedication of its members who work every day toward the greater good of this unique school.
