School Closing Information for 2006-2007 School Year

JPS’ School Closing and Delayed Opening Reminders

As a reminder to Jamestown School students and their parents/guardians, when weather conditions develop that warrant the closing of Jamestown Public Schools announcements will be on area radio stations and television stations. The first announcement concerning the closing of Jamestown Public Schools will be made before 6:15 a.m. The closing of schools will automatically eliminate transportation to all other schools that are normally served by Jamestown Public Schools. There will be no interscholastic athletic sports practice, adult education etc., on snow days.

If school is in session and a parent or guardian feels that weather conditions in their immediate area of the school district warrant keeping small children at home, that is their decision. It is a legal excuse for an absence by New York State Education law. Parents and/or guardians have to make this final decision for their children. The decision concerning whether or not schools will be open or closed must be based on the general district-wide conditions.

If Jamestown Schools require a delayed opening of one or two hour delays the following rules will apply:

1. When there is a delayed opening, there will be bus runs. Both the bus runs and the delayed opening will be advanced the number of hours of the delay (I or 2 hours). The announcement on the radio/TV will state, “delayed opening of 1 or 2 hours, transportation will be delayed 1 or 2 hours.” This includes all regular and special education children.

2. When there is a delayed opening, breakfast program will not be served in Jamestown Public Schools.

3. When there is a delayed opening, before school programs such as music, and the before school programs at Jefferson and Washington Schools, will be cancelled.

4. When there is a delayed opening of 1 or 2 hours, full day pre-K classes at Rogers, Bush and Love will operate on the delayed schedule. However, morning pre-K classes at Fletcher, Lincoln, Ring and A Children’s Place will be cancelled for the day.

5. When there is a delayed opening of 1 or 2 hours, starting times will be:

One-Hour Delay

Elementary - 9:30 a.m
Middle School - 9:30 a.m.
JHS - 9:00 a.m.

Two-Hour Delay

Elementary - 10:30 a.m.
Middle School - 10:30 a.m.
JHS - 10:00 a.m.

6. If we had to close school after calling a delay we would attempt to make that final call between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m.

7. In the event of a delayed opening, radio stations and TV stations will be notified usually by 6:15 a,m. Our experience is that radio stations are the fastest and most reliable reporters of information called in.

Once schools are in session, they will not usually be closed during the day if adverse weather conditions develop because of parents’ work schedules. Each household should develop an emergency plan within their own family to deal with emergencies. Parents are advised to make sure school officials have the appropriate emergency phone numbers at their local school.

However, in cases of inclement weather, after-school and evening activities may be cancelled. A decision will be made no later than 2 p.m. and local radio stations will be notified. When after-school and evening activities are cancelled most students must go home directly after regular dismissal time. There will be no late buses.

In such inclement weather circumstances, after school child care programs will generally be held. However, because late bus runs will not occur, parents will need to pick up their children as soon as reasonably possible. After-school staff will stay with the children until all children are picked up. All other activities including clubs, sports, alternative education, adult education classes, board meetings, etc. will be cancelled for that evening.

If parents wish to pick up students during the school day at any time throughout the entire school year, it is necessary for the parent or adult acting on behalf of the parent to identify themselves to the satisfaction of the building principal. Students will not be released to unauthorized students, neighbors, friends, or relatives without the specific written authorization granted by the student’s parent or guardian.

Reminder to Staff - When JPS’ has a delayed opening, staff should report as soon as weather conditions permit and as close to your contractual obligations as possible.

Superintendent of Schools
