Weather Cancellations/Emergency Closings Procedures Reminder

Winter Weather Reminder
Winter will soon be arriving to Central New York, and with it also comes the winter weather. With this in mind, we would like to take this opportunity to remind parents/guardians of Solvay Union Free School District’s weather cancellations/emergency closings procedures.

In an effort to keep families informed, the district uses an automated emergency calling system. This system is used to contact parents and guardians in the event school will be delayed, closed, or dismissed early (after the start of the school day). It supplements the already established procedures of contacting the local news media. Families should ensure that all emergency contact information is updated with their child(ren)’s school(s) with any changes to phone numbers and addresses (including email) as soon as possible. Not only is the district responsible for keeping this information in educational records, but current information is essential for any emergency notification. Cancellations or delays are also posted on the district website (

In addition to the district website, the following local media outlets are also used to notify our school community of any weather cancellations/ emergency closings:
Television: Radio:
• NBC 3 WSTM-TV (channel 3)
• CBS 5 WTVH-TV (channel 5)
