Emergency Closings:
If inclement weather makes it necessary to close school, announcements will be made over Syracuse radio, TV stations, and Parent Square (snow days).
If there is an emergency closing during the day, students will be dismissed according to your instructions on the emergency closing form filled out at the beginning of each school year. If your plan changes during the year, please notify the office.

If your child is absent, please call the attendance clerk, Carly Smurthwaite, at 315-291-2263 by 9:15 am. On the day your child returns to school, he/she needs to bring a note stating the reason for the absence.

Other Things to Remember:
Bus Notes – We do not keep bus notes from last year. Make sure to send a new bus note if you have alternate arrangements for dismissal other than busing home.
Please make sure you send your child’s lunch, sneakers, outdoor clothing, instrument, water bottle and bus note each day.  It is important that your child come to school prepared and ready to learn!
If you need to drop something off, please label your item with the teacher’s name and place  it on the shelf in the foyer. 

Thank you,
