The winter months in Central New York provide unsettling and unpredictable weather patterns. District personnel monitor the roadways in the district beginning at 4:00 a.m. Decisions to close or delay the opening of school are made by approximately 6:15 a.m. Please note that because of the heavy volume handled by the stations, mistakes can be made in reporting which districts are open, closed, or delayed. You are encouraged to check more than one station on these mornings.
In the event of severe weather, it may be necessary to close school earlier than normal. Please develop an emergency plan for the children in your family. Be sure that they are aware of the arrangements you have made for them in the event that you are not home when school is dismissed.
When the Westhill Central School District is closed due to inclement weather, all scheduled activities, events, meetings, and programs are also cancelled. In addition, school closing information also applies to all students receiving transportation to BOCES, private and parochial schools
