School Closing Information

School Closings, Delays and Early Dismissal

Delayed Opening 

A decision to postpone the opening of school rather than closing school altogether will be made in consideration of highway maintenance operations, which might require additional time to plow and sand/salt roadways; to allow morning commuter traffic to clear from the roadways; or when weather conditions are predicted to improve during the morning hours.

Early Dismissal 
Times of early dismissals prompted by severe weather or other emergencies that develop later in the day must accommodate the schedules schools served by the district's transportation department. Parents are urged to make advance plans for their children's care in the event of an early school closing. Early closing announcements will be made as soon in the day as practical. After school and evening activities may also be cancelled as conditions change during the day.

Weather conditions can vary significantly within the district. On any given day when roads in Ellenville and the surrounding suburban areas are in good condition, they might be quite different in the district's outer reaches. If roads in one or more area of the school district are unsafe and conditions are not expected to improve by mid-morning, all schools in the district will be closed.
