As a reminder, here are the snow day procedures:
The Chancellor will make an announcement to all public schools in the city on whether to close schools or delay their opening. This announcement is made in consultation with other City officials. All authorized delayed openings will result in the regular starting time being two hours later.
Please note the Principal cannot make the decision to close the school.
By 6:00 A.M. the decision is announced on the 311 Information Line, on the Department of Education website Home Page (which can be accessed at http://schools,nyc.gov/calendarand on the following radio stations in the city: WINS (1010 AM), WCBS (880 AM), WABC (770 AM), WLIB (1190 AM), WADO (1280 AM), WBLS (107.5 FM), WNYE (91.5 FM), as well as the following television stations: WCBS (Channel 2), WNBC (Channel 4), WNYW (Fox Channel 5), WABC (Channel 7), WNYE (Channel 25), Univision Channel 41, and “NY 1” (Channel 1 on cable television). Major radio news stations, such as WINS (1010 AM) and WCBS (880 AM), should be listened to on portable radios in the event of a major blackout.
When there is an authorized citywide delayed school opening, school buses will run, but their arrival times will be delayed by two hours. It is expected that when there is a delayed opening, all afterschool activities will be cancelled. As a result, all students will be dismissed at the regular time. However, if citywide emergency conditions or a storm worsen, the Chancellor may have to announce an early dismissal. The Chancellor will notify bus services of earlier dismissal schedule.
