Procedures for Delayed Openings & School Cancellations

  • The following procedures are used by the Superintendent of Schools to notify parents, students, and staff of delayed openings and school cancellations for the upcoming winter season.


    Using Blackboard Notification System, an emergency communication system, parents, and students will be notified between 6:30 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. if there is to be a delayed opening or school cancellation because of severe weather. 

    District and School Web Sites

    That same information will be posted as an announcement on the home page.


    School delays and cancellations are posted on both Channel 77 (Cablevision) and Channel 40 (FIOS).
    If for some reason none of those systems are working properly, information will be posted on News 12 Westchester, WFAS (1230 AM/103.9 FM), and WHUD (100.7 FM). 

    If a student or parent has checked all of those notification points and information regarding a delayed opening or a school cancellation is not there, it means that school is open and students are to report for a normal day of school.
