Information about closings and delays for the 2022-23 school year

Dear families,

Looking ahead to winter weather, the Queensbury Union Free School District wants students, staff and families to know how the district will handle weather-related closures and delays in the 2022-23 school year.

Weather-related closures

As in past years, schools will be closed when snow or poor road conditions make travel difficult or impossible. There will be no classes on these snow days.

In the event of a snow day, the letter day would carry over to the next day school is in session (for grades 6-12). For example, if there is a snow day on a B day, the next school day would be a B day.

However, if there are more snow days used this winter than the academic calendar allows, it may become necessary to use these days for virtual instruction to not extend the end of the school year. If the district does exceed its allotted number of snow days, families would be notified in advance that subsequent snow days will include virtual instruction.

Food service

In the event of a delayed start, breakfast will be offered and there will be no changes to lunch.

How QUFSD communicates weather-related delays or closures

Cancellations, delays or early dismissals are posted on the school district’s website, right on the homepage of our website. School closings are also announced local TV and radio stations.  

For district parents, closing information will be sent directly to you via ParentSquare. 

Parents who need to update their contact information should email or call their building secretary. ParentSquare uses the information from SchoolTool to generate announcements.

It is best to rely on more than one source of information when it comes to weather-related announcements. This is particularly true in situations that involve power outages, which can affect the district’s ability to send electronic notifications.

Thank you for your continued partnership.
