Helpful Winter Weather Hints
Monday, November 13, 2017
Central New York experienced its first dose of winter weather this past weekend, with the promise of more to come. Because of this, the Liverpool Central School District would like to share some helpful reminders with our parents and guardians.
During inclement weather, there are many factors that affect our buses and it is not uncommon for buses to run a few minutes late. Students still need to be at the bus stop on time, even in the coldest of weather.
Please have your child dressed appropriately. If the students are not out, the bus cannot wait because that would make them even later for everyone else.
If schools are delayed or closed, that information is posted on the LCSD Web site (www.liverpool.k12.ny.us) immediately, usually before 6 a.m., and announced using the Key Communicator (e-mail) and SchoolMessenger (e-mail and text message) services.
Don't receive text messages? Please text the word "Subscribe" to the number 67587 (you can unsubscribe at anytime by texting the word “Stop” to the same number).
Please note that the District does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by the user. These charges are dependent on the wireless plan of the user. Please check with your carrier for possible charges before deciding to “opt in.” If a parent decides to “opt out,” he or she can still receive phone calls and e-mails from the system without charges being incurred.
It is important that your contact information is up-to-date in our student information system so that you can receive notices from SchoolMessenger in the event school is closed, delayed or dismissed early. Please contact your school building if your contact information has changed.
In addition, local television stations will announce the delays or closings live on TV and on their Web sites.
No matter what the weather please remember that if you are driving and you encounter a school bus with its red lights flashing you must stop. There will be children entering or exiting the bus… let’s keep them safe!
Additional Winter Information...
On certain rare occasions, emergency conditions, such as impending storms, may necessitate dismissal of students before regular school closing time. In such an event, efforts will be made to have the emergency closing posted on the Web site and announced via the Key Communicator, SchoolMessenger and local television stations.
