Winter in the Southern Tier can be very challenging. When severe weather occurs, we must decide whether to open or close our schools. Please rest assured that this decision is made cautiously and with much thought. Our ultimate concern is the safety of our students, faculty, and staff.
In case of an unscheduled school delay, closing, or early dismissal, our goal is to notify the community efficiently and promptly. We know our decision to close schools in poor weather can be burdensome to families due to childcare and work schedules. We consider canceling school an exception and strongly emphasize keeping our schools open. Students benefit both academically and socially by being in school.
Please take a few minutes to review the school closing procedures: https://5il.co/1kpsd
