Inclement WeatherRegulations of the State Education Department require a minimum of 180 days of school when pupils are in attendance. It is the responsibility of the Board of Education to keep schools open. Parents are to use their own judgment as to whether they send their children to school under extreme weather conditions or in unusual situations.
The City School District uses local radio and television stations to announce school closings. Parents should monitor the weather conditions and tune in to WDKX, WHAM or WVOR for City School closings. It is imperative that all families have alternative plans in case of an early dismissal due to emergency conditions or extreme weather conditions. Children should know where to go if there is no parent at home. All bus and walking students will be dismissed when schools are closed early.
