If there is a delay in school opening, an early closing or a closing for the day, it will be posted under the "Announcements" Section on the district homepage in addition to all the other ways in which they are typically announced. 
The Superintendent is in touch with the transportation and maintenance supervisors to assess the road conditions in town, as well as other area Superintendents, the State Police and Killingly Highway Department.

CANCELLATION, DELAYED OPENING, & EARLY DISMISSAL PROCEDURES

 

 

In the event of stormy weather, school cancellations and delayed openings will be announced on the radio and TV as early as possible. In order to help you prepare for morning childcare and/or supervision, ALL DELAYED OPENINGS WILL BE TWO (2) HOURS.

When there is a 2-hour delay, there is no breakfast program and no morning preschool.

 

Our automated telephone calling system will contact you if there is a delay, cancellation or early dismissal. Please be sure that schools have your correct telephone number on file.

****************EARLY DISMISSAL PROCEDURES*******************

 

Should a storm develop while school is in session and we feel it is in the interest of safety to dismiss students early, announcements will also be on radio and TV stations.

When there is an early dismissal there is no afternoon preschool.

 

Early dismissal hours are:

KHS-12:00 p.m.       KIS-12:10 p.m.      KCS-1:10 p.m       KMS-1:20 p.m.     Goodyear -11:15 a.m.

Before and After School Program (BASP) at KCS and KMS: On days when schools are closed for students, BASP will open at 8:30 at KMS.  If the entire District is closed (no office staff) there is no BASP program.  If there is an early dismissal, BASP is open until 6:00 p.m. unless otherwise directed by the Superintendent.

 

SCORE Program: On days when schools are closed for students, SCORE will open at 7:00 a.m.

If the entire District is closed (no office staff) there is no SCORE Program.  If there is an early dismissal, SCORE is open until 6:00 p.m. unless otherwise directed by the Superintendent.

 

Parents of elementary and intermediate students should make arrangements to receive students at home if there is an early dismissal. Either arrange to be home early for your child’s arrival, or arrange for a relative or neighbor to provide supervision. Please inform your child of your plans in the case of an early dismissal.  Principals and staff will not be able to call individual parents to confirm or arrange these plans.
