emergency closing information

ImageScotia-Glenville now uses the Blackboard Connect system. Using telephone numbers in the PowerSchool student data system, telephone calls and emails are sent to every home in the school district during an emergency, school closing or delay because of the weather.

The system can also be tailored to send text messages and make calls to the numbers that you provide to the system.

Check this page to see if school is closed or delayed during inclement weather or an emergency.

Please note: if you have a scheduled kindergarten registration appointment, the office is still open and your appointment will still be held, unless indicated otherwise.

Schenectady County school districts adopt uniform school closing procedures

December 17, 2015

With winter weather coming, Schenectady County schools announce joint protocols for closings and delays
In an effort to enhance student and community safety and communication with families, schools in Schenectady County have established joint protocols for weather-related closings and delays.

The involved districts are Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, Duanesburg, Mohonasen, Niskayuna, Schalmont, Schenectady and Scotia-Glenville, each of which is located entirely within the county or serves a portion of it.

Neighboring districts are typically in close contact when bad weather hits. Formalizing protocols across the districts represents a new level of cooperation and provides additional clarity to families and municipal government ahead of the coming winter. READ MORE
