District Announcements

  • Thank You Community, for your participation in our Community Forum Series. We invite you to continue the dialogue via Let's Talk!

    In Nyack Schools, we are interested in continuing a community-wide, collaborative conversation of what it takes to ensure that all students succeed and how to measure that success in our ever-changing, complex world.

    With Let's Talk! , we respond promptly and directly to your concerns, questions, suggestions and comments when you provide us with your contact information and the dialogue is continued.   If you choose, submissions can also be anonymous.  Please see the attached flyer with specific instructions for how to use Let's Talk!

    Whether you are a student, parent, staff or community member, we are listening and hope to hear from you!

Emergency Closings

School Closings/Early Dismissal

The decision to cancel school is based upon the District’s regard for the safety of all students, walkers and those transported. The decision is made after a thorough check with local police, highway authorities, the weather forecast, and the District’s transportation office. In an unanticipated emergency, early school dismissal will be a measure of last resort and only if it is impossible to make other arrangements. Parents must have a plan of action to follow if schools must be closed early and no one is home.

The District will report closings/delays by 6 AM.  Families will receive a phone call and announcements will also be made via the following:

  • Radio: WCBS (880 AM); WFAS (1230 AM; 103.9 FM, 106.3 FM) WHUD (100.7 FM); WRGC (1300 AM)
  • Phone message: at the Schools & Administration building
  • Internet: www.nyackschools.org
  • TV: Channel 2, 4, 5, 7 & 12 (message appears across the screen bottom)
     

Snow Days
Three snow days are built into the school calendar year in case schools are closed for bad weather. If closings exceed three days, Friday, March 16 and Friday, April 13 and Thursday, April 12 will be used, in that order, as instructional days. If closings exceed five days or more before Feb. recess, Friday, February 24, will be used as a school day. Additional vacation time may be created at the end of May if snow days are not used.
