Inclement weather reminders   

The weather outside is not quite yet frightful, but it's never too early to be prepared. Now is a good time to review how Port Byron communicates school closings, delays and early dismissals.
The decision to delay the opening of school or close school due to inclement weather will be made, if possible, by 6:00 a.m. by the Superintendent of Schools in consultation with local and county highway officials.
In the case of an early dismissal, secondary students will be transported home. Elementary students will be transported to the location specified on the student's Emergency Dismissal Pass. Your children should be instructed what to do if you are not home.
Announcements of school delays, closings or early dismissals will be immediately broadcast over local radio and television stations, and posted on the district's website. We will also use the emergency notification system to send out a phone message to parents and guardians. If there are no announcements, the district will be operating on a regular schedule.
School delays, closings, early dismissals or after-school activity cancellations will be reported to the following television and radio stations:

  • WSTM, TV-3
  • WTVH, TV-5
  • NEWS10, TV-10
  • WSYR, News Channel 9
  • WBBS, B104.7
  • Y94FM
  • WALL FM, 99.3
  • WHCD FM, 106.9

Priority of Make-Up Days

If the minimum number of legally required school days (180) cannot be met because of school closings, make-up days will be required.
