EMERGENCY CLOSING INFORMATION
In anticipation of emergency closings, such as snow days, the district makes an effort to build the school calendar with additional days in order to first comply with New York State Education Law related to student attendance and then with any EASO contractual obligations. Each year’s calendar varies due to the number of holidays that fall on weekdays; therefore, there is an annual review to ensure that the district meets the legal attendance requirements while adding a cushion of potential emergency days.
