    Calling All Band Alumni!

    All alumni of the Delone Catholic High School Band (marching or concert, any graduation year) are cordially invited to play in the bleachers with the current Marching Band at the upcoming homecoming game on Friday, Oct. 13, 2017. Mr. Yealy can supply some drums, but most alumni will need to bring their own instruments. Color Guard alumni and former instrumentalists who do not have access to an instrument are also invited to join us in the bleachers. All participants are asked to register online by Wednesday Sept. 27. Playing participants are kindly asked to make a one-time $5 donation at the game to help the band purchase additional copies of the iconic "yellow books" for alumni to use.  If possible, participants should plan to meet in the bleachers around 6 p.m. on Oct. 13. Contact byealy@delonecatholic.org with any questions. We hope to see you there!

  • Inclement Weather Reminders

    For delays and closures: Delone Catholic parents are notified via One-Call of school delays and closures. The information, along with early dismissal information, is posted on the website, Facebook, and Twitter as soon as possible. You may also call the school at 717-637-5969 and the recording will notify you of a delay or closure. WGAL is notified immediately upon the decision to delay or close. In addition to T.V., closures and delays are posted on http://www.wgal.com/weather/closings

    For early dismissals: Phone calls from parents will not be accepted for dismissal requests. The phone lines are needed to receive information from the school districts. We also encourage students to call parents from the office to inform them of the different drop off schedule for bus transportation so that an adult may be available for the transport from the bus stop to home.

    Please be alert to those weather forecasts for incoming snow possibilities. If you wish your student to be dismissed at a different time, you must send in a note with your student for each dismissal. No emails and no phone calls will be accepted. Notes must be turned in before homeroom, on the day they are to be applied. You may not submit one note for the duration of the school year. A note must be delivered on each separate occasion.

    Thank you for your cooperation.
