Emergency School Closing
Before School Begins

If schools in East Ramapo are to be closed before the start of the school day, a decision will be made by 6 a.m. and announced on the radio or infophone by 6:30 a.m. The same will apply if school is to be delayed one hour or two hours. If school is delayed, please continue to listen to the radio in case of an additional change. In case of a one or two hour delay, students are to report to their bus stop on or two hours later than usual. Dismissal at the end of the day will remain the same. If the opening of school is delayed, all AM kindergarten and AM pre-kindergarten classes will be cancelled.

For current information on the possibility of a delayed opening or school closing, you may listen to any of the following radio stations: WRCR (1300 AM), WFAS (1230 AM), WLNA (1420 AM), WVOX (1460 AM), WHUD (100.7 FM), and WSPK (104.7 FM).

When School is in Session

If students are to be sent home due to poor weather conditions, that decision will be made by 11:15 a.m. If P.M. kindergarten or pre-kindergarten classes are to be cancelled, that decision will be made by 10:30 a.m. Please listen to the radio stations above. Do NOT call the schools as it ties up the phones needed to call the radio stations and bus drivers. Make sure your children know what to do in case they are sent home early. Your child needs to know where to go and what to do in case of an early dismissal.
