Inclement Weather Policy

When weather or other unexpected situations arise causing the school or YMCA to be closed, the following steps will be taken to inform you:

  • A statement will be posted on our website and on our Facebook page
  • An announcement will be made on local news channels and radio stations (WGAL) by the Y for our closures and by the individual schools for their closures.
  • If a school closure occurs, an automated message will be sent to you via the school (pending your registration at the school for this service) indicated their early dismissal/closure. See below for how these incidents will be handled by the YMCA, as this does not automatically mean that the YMCA is closed.

If a closure or delay/dismissal occurs and you have a question, please contact Nafee Harris at the YMCA at 717-393-9622, ext. 1118.

Please be aware that upon notification of a closure or dismissal, Nafee will be managing communications with numerous families, staff and public communication services.  He may not be readily available, so we ask that you only call Nafee AFTER reviewing the policies below and checking the YMCA’s website first (
