When school is closed for an emergency, it will also be closed for any other use that might have been scheduled for that day. If, in your opinion as a parent, you consider your road conditions are too dangerous for school buses to travel, and the school is operating, we suggest that you exercise your right as a parent to keep your children at home. There is no foolproof way to make a decision to operate or not operate school.
All students need to be well instructed by their parents as to what to do if they arrive home to find no one there. The family shall be responsible for having emergency plans for school closings.
In compliance with New York State Education Commissioner's Regulation 155.13, Afton Central School has developed an emergency management plan. This plan is available for public inspection in the district office.
