Weather Delays & School Closings Information

  • It sometimes becomes necessary to close or delay opening school due to weather conditions that make travel difficult or roads impassable. When this occurs, local radio stations are notified and will make announcements. In the event of inclement weather, set your dial to WALK at 97.5 FM, or WBLI at 106.1 FM for timely information.  Please do not call the schools or transportation department. It is imperative that telephone lines be available for communication between the schools, radio stations and bus operators.

    Some District PTA/PTSA units have telephone chains to notify parents of school closure. Ask your PTA/PTSA president if this applies at your school.

    Additionally, in the event of any unanticipated school emergency, the District emergency phone line and/or Connect-Ed will carry a recorded message. This message will explain the nature of the emergency and will provide specific instructions for parents/guardians. Connect-Ed is a system that will allow the District to call parents in the community with important information. If you do not wish to be contacted in this manner, please notify your child’s principal in writing.

    Please note this important information:   Emergency hotline number: 285-8088

    The Middle Country Central School District also employees a number of digital methods to share information with parents, staff, and the community.  For more information on these methods, please visit the District Communications Link below.
