When school is closed due to inclement weather or other emergencies, announcements are made via multiple mediums:

  • NTI: The District Emergency Notification System will distribute the message via contact numbers you submitted on the emergency contact forms.
  • CCSD Switchboard: (845) 639-6300 (Press 9 and then 4. This will take you to the weather information mailbox.)
  • Radio: WRCR (1300), WLNA (1420), WHUD (100.7 FM), WFAS (1230 AM & 103.9 FM), WVOX (1460 AM), WVNJ (1160 AM), WCBS (880 AM) & County Radio (1640 AM).
  • Television: WABC-TV (Channel 7) & Fox 5 (WNYW), WRNN-TV (Kingston), WNBC-TV (Channel 4)
  • Internet: www.cancellations.com, www.ccsd.edu

The decision to close or delay openings is made by the Superintendent of schools after consultation with local police, the highway department, various weather services, and the Transportation Department. Should the number of days of inclement weather closings exceed the number of days provided, the excess days will be made up at the discretion of district administration.
