Schools to dismiss 15 minutes early on Oct. 6 for annual drill


Students will be released from school 15 minutes earlier than their regular dismissal time on Friday, Oct. 6 for the district’s annual drill to practice emergency dismissal procedures. Please plan accordingly.

New York State requires all school districts to hold an annual “Go Home Early” drill to help ensure that students and staff know the procedures to follow in case an emergency requires school grounds to be cleared and students to be transported home or to another location.

Practicing these types of drills are an important step in keeping our students, staff and schools safe.

If you have any questions about the drill, please contact your childs school principal.
