Closing school is one of the most difficult decisions districts have to make. While we want our students in school and ready to learn each day, the reality is that we live in upstate New York and we will experience a myriad of weather (or other) events that could lead to school closures or cancellations.
With the winter months comes an increased focus on student safety, and there are days when we must cancel after school activities or even close school because of unsafe/hazardous conditions. Please know that these decisions are made very carefully, and only after consulting weather resources, local highway superintendents, our transportation supervisor, and area school administrators.
In the event of a closing or a cancellation, the District will send out a Blackboard Connect-Ed Parent Notification on our phone system, and we will post information on the school homepage. In addition, the information will also be communicated via Rochester TV stations (Channels 8, 10, and 13).
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding our school closing and cancellation procedures.
