Stay informed about weather related closings and delays

on November 4, 2019

We’d like to remind parents and students about how Warwick Valley Central School District communicates weather-related announcements, including closings, delays and early dismissals.

Where can I find the announcements for closings/delays?

Once the decision is made to change the school district’s regular operating schedule, that information is sent through a variety of ways:

  • The WVCSD mobile apps – there’s one for each of the district’s four schools – are the best way to receive alerts. The apps are free and work with Apple and Android phones. Find them at the App Store and Google Play. 
  • Posted on the homepage of this website, the district’s Facebook and Twitter
  • School Messenger Service (text and email)
  • School News Notifier (SNN)
  • TV stations:  WABC-TV, WNBC-TV, FOX 5/NNYW, Hudson Valley News 12
  • FM radio: 93.5 WTBQ; 92.1 Lite-FM; 92.7, 96.9 WRRV; Star 93.3;  94.1, 95.7, 96.7, 103.1, 107.7 FOX; 94.3, 97.3 The Wolf; 96.1 KISS FM; MIX 97.7; 98.9 Fox Oldies; News Talk 99.3 WKIP; 100.7 WHUD; 101.5, 106.1, 106.3 WPDH; and 107.3
  • AM radio: 1110 WTBQ; 1220 Fox Oldies; 1340, 1390 Radio Disney; 1450 WKIP-AM

Why would school be canceled/delayed?

While snow is the reason for most school closings and delays, it’s not the only possible reason. Especially during the winter months, the regular school schedule could be disrupted because of a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with snow: Extreme wind chills, boiler failures and water main breaks have all affected schools in upstate New York during recent winters.

At what time would school be canceled/delayed?

Every possible effort is made to release this information before 5:30 a.m. so parents and staff are notified before they leave for work.
