Emergency Closing Information

  • Occasionally it is necessary to close schools due to adverse weather conditions. The Superintendent of Schools makes this decision based on information from the transportation supervisor and in consultation with the State Police which monitor road conditions. Every effort is made to make the decision as early in the morning as possible. When Pine Valley Central School is closed, school buses will not transport any students. When schools are closed, all activities are cancelled within the building and all sport trips and field trips are also cancelled. Due to child care issues, school will normally dismiss at regularly scheduled times, even in the event of bad weather. Only the most extreme conditions warrant the early dismissal of students. The decision may be made, however, to cancel after-school activities.  Please turn to one of the following radio or television stations for school closing information and/or cancellation of after-school activities:

    WBEN (930)

    WYRK (106.5 FM)

    WKBW – TV Channel 7
