Two-Hour Delayed Opening

Students will report to their bus stops exactly two hours later than they normally would. This delayed opening may also be used for other types of emergencies.
All students attending private or parochial schools will follow the same procedure and report to their bus stops exactly two hours after their normal pickup times.
Notice of the delayed opening will be made as early as possible and broadcast on the listed radio stations, riverheadlocal and TV-Cablevision News 12. (See above list.)
