School Closings and Early Dismissal Procedure
Emergency Early Dismissal
Should early dismissal be necessary, students will be transported to their homes in the same manner in which they are usually taken home at the close of the school day.
Parents will not be permitted to enter the school campus to pick up their child in the event of an emergency.
Emergency Contact Information
Please be sure that your child's school office has the names, addresses and telephone numbers of individuals we should contact in the event of an emergency.
School Closing Information
In the majority of circumstances, the decision to close or delay school is made by 6:15 a.m. and this information is provided to the local television stations (WGRZ - Channel 2, WIVB - Channel 4, WKBW - Channel 7) and by robo call to parent telephone numbers.
The closing information will also be posted on the home page of Lew-Port’s website.
There is also a "School Closings" announcement on the district website’s home page which will take you to the Channel 2, 4 & 7 websites for closings throughout the area. Additionally, you may call the District’s main telephone number (754-8281) to receive information when school is closed or delayed.
The final decision lies with the parents or guardians. If you believe it is too cold, or the snow is too deep, or the weather is too unsettled, your decision may be to keep your child home. Please note: When schools are closed, all other activities, including sports practices, student activities and continuing and community education classes are also cancelled.
