MAKING THE CALL DURING INCLEMENT WEATHER: A MESSAGE FROM DR. BRYANT

Click here to read about the factors considered when making school closure and delay decisions.

 

WHEN INCLEMENT WEATHER OCCURS

The Warwick Valley Central School District may be forced to close or dismiss its students early when inclement weather occurs. Closings, delays, and early dismissal information will be posted on this website, sent via SNN, posted on the districts Facebook and Twitter pages and announced on the radio and TV stations listed below. Please keep in mind that a power outage could prevent closure information from being posted on the website, Facebook and Twitter, or from being sent via SNN, or from being viewed on cable TV. If the power is out, please listen for school closure announcements on one of the radio stations listed below.

Please do not call the bus garage about closings.
Those phone lines must be kept free for emergency calls; this can be especially critical in bad weather.

 

SCHOOL CLOSING, DELAY AND EARLY DISMISSAL INFO SENT TO YOUR EMAIL

SNN (School News Notifier) is an opt-in e-mail alert system for which parents and residents can sign up to receive email alerts from the district. MORE

ORDER OF DISMISSALS

When there is an early dismissal, high school and middle school students are released first, along with the parochial schools and then the elementary schools. This ensures that the older siblings of elementary students arrive home before younger brothers and sisters. The time between dismissals is approximately 45 minutes. Whatever the grade level, parents are reminded to make sure that all school-age children know what to do in case of early dismissal.

 

LISTEN AND WATCH FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS

The following television and radio stations will announce school closings, delays and early dismissals. The list is different this year than in previous years. Some stations will not be broadcasting Warwick school closings any more. Please check the list carefully.
