Albany SNN

We also invite you to sign up for School News Notifier, a City School District of Albany communications network.

 

Albany SNN provides information via e-mail and text message when there are school closings or delays, or other emergency notifications. Albany SNN also provides news and information via e-mail from each of our 15 schools and a variety of additional programs and services such as athletics, Board of Education news and transportation.

 

It’s easy to register. Just follow the School News Notifier link above or visit www.albanyschools.org, click on the Albany SNN logo on the top right-hand side of the home page and follow the easy registration steps. You can choose to receive news and alerts in as many or as few categories as you would like, and you can unsubscribe at any time.

 

School Delays
In instances where the district decides a late start is in order, school will begin two hours later than the normal start time. A delay means if your child's bus normally picks up at 8 a.m., your child would be picked up at 10 a.m. for a two-hour delay.

 

If you usually drop your child off at school or your child walks to school, please make sure it corresponds with the delay. Please do not send your child to school at the normal start time when school is delayed. The building will not be open, and there will be no staff available to supervise children.

 

Closing School Early
When it is necessary to close school early, early closings typically will be two and one-half hours earlier than the normal ending time of classes. For example, if your child's school day normally ends at 2:30 p.m., it would close at noon.

 

In addition, when school closes early all after-school activities and childcare services are cancelled. If your child is transported to an after-school program and school closes early, you must make arrangements to have your child picked up at the school building. No alternate transportation arrangements can be made on short notice.

 

To learn of delayed starts or early dismissals and for specific details, please use the resources listed above.
