Delayed Start Plan
The purpose of a delayed start to schools is to allow time for weather and/or work conditions to change so that school attendance is possible. A delayed start to the school day may allow for temperatures to rise in the morning or to allow more time for roads, sidewalks, and/or lots to be cleared. The determination of this will be made by the Superintendent of Schools.
If a delayed start is called, schools will start accordingly:
Elementary 10:45 a.m. (8:45 a.m. normal start)
Prep 9:35 a.m. (7:35 a.m. normal start)
NFHS 10:15 a.m. (8:15 a.m. normal start)
Dismissal times will remain the same as any usual school day, per division.
All staff will follow their normal work day schedules including report to work time
After a delayed start opening, each levels will determine how the remainder of the day will be structured
Out of District bussing will continue at normal times
A.M. BOCES will report to NFHS and be supervised until classes begin. Additional substitutes may be needed.
Parochial schools will follow the District schedule
Teacher compensation for loss of planning time will not be granted
Schools will offer a continental type breakfast, lunches will be served at the usual times
Key delayed start information will be printed on the student bus schedules and will be printed on bus cards in Grades PreK-8
A communication plan will be established to inform all stakeholders
