Information Regarding Inclement Weather Closings/Delays/Early Dismissals
Please take a moment to review Chenango Valley Central School District’s winter weather closing, delay and early dismissal procedures to help ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff. Careful regard for safety is made when considering snow, ice and other weather-related delays or closings. Contact is made with local town highway departments, input from the National Weather Service is considered, and discussions are held with our transportation department and other area school districts.

After public conversation with our Board of Education, Chenango Valley will continue to utilize our snow day system with school being canceled in inclement weather for both in-person and remote learners. In the event of a one-hour or two-hour delay schedule, both in-person and remote learners will adjust their current schedules and routines by that appropriate amount of time. If we begin to utilize too many of our allotted snow days/emergency closures, rather than losing scheduled days off in the spring, we will look to opt for remote learning on inclement weather days instead. If this becomes the case, we will share this information with our families.

Notifications
The district will notify parents/guardians about these occurrences through the following channels:
  • Notifications for delays, closings and early dismissals are shared with local media, shared through our automated calling system (these voice messages are sent to the phone numbers of students’ primary contacts), and sent via our opt-in emergency alert system* (which includes an email and/or text message alert notification). *Please make sure that you are signed up for our opt-in text/email emergency alert notifications and that your information is updated: Visit www.cvcsd.stier.org/PortalLogin.aspx for details.
  • Notifications are also posted on our website (www.cvcsd.stier.org).

Potential Inclement Weather Scenarios
  • A school closing means that schools are closed for that calendar day. This includes remote learning. When school is closed due to inclement weather, there will not be extracurricular activities such as meetings, practices and contests.
  • With a one or two-hour delay schedule, your child’s school day will begin one or two hours after the regular start time. Dismissal times will remain the same.
  • In the event that a three-hour delay schedule is utilized, your child’s school day will start three hours after the usual start time with dismissal times staying the same. A three-hour delay schedule would be utilized only if weather conditions forecasted indicated a significant improvement that would allow road crews the time needed to make our roadways safe for travel. In addition, a three-hour delay may assist us in preventing changes to planned vacation days already on our school calendar.
  • If there is an early dismissal due to potentially dangerous weather conditions, all extracurricular activities will be canceled. Please make sure that you have a plan in place for situations where your child may be released early.

PLEASE NOTE: This information is subject to change due to various circumstances. Any changes will be communicated with families as soon as that information becomes available. As always, the safety and security of our students and staff is our top priority. We greatly appreciate your continued cooperation and understanding.
