District Announcements

General Information about School Closings, Delayed Openings, or Early Dismissals

General Information:    On those days when weather or some other condition requires a change in the regular school day, such information will be broadcast over TV Channel 5,  Good Day NY, Cable News 12 Westchester, WRNN-TV, WHUD 100.7(FM), WFAS 1230 (AM), WCBS 880 Radio (AM), WGCH 1490 (AM), and 1010 WINS (AM).

The information will also appear on all school and the district website.   You will also receive a "robo call".

School Closing:   Announcements will be made as close to 6:00 AM as possible.

Delayed Opening:   Announcements will be made as close to 6:00 AM as possible and will include the length of the delay.   Parents should continue to monitor the websites, media and any phone calls from the district to determine whether further adjustments are made, as it may be necessary to change to a further delay or to a closing.

As we cannot provide proper supervision for your children in the schools on delayed opening days, please do not drop your children off at the schools before the designated delayed opening time.  Dismissals on days of delayed opening will be at the regular time, unless announced otherwise.

Transportation to Out-of-District or Private Schools:    Parents who send their children to private school should be aware that the transportation provided by the school district to private schools follows the same schedule as the school district.  For example, if the district schools are on a two-hour delay, all transportation to private schools will be delayed two hours.  If the district schools are closed to due inclement weather, there will be no out-of-district transportation for private schools.

 Early Dismissal:   Announcement of such dismissal will be made as early as possible through a "robo call", on our websites, and through the media.

 Emergency Dismissal Drill:   Once a year, a district-wide emergency dismissal drill will be held.  All Port Chester-Rye Union Free School District schools will dismiss early.
