Schools will dismiss students 15 minutes early Wednesday as part of a “rapid dismissal” emergency drill mandated by New York State. A rapid dismissal may be required in the event of inclement weather or a school evacuation. Elementary school parents should expect students to be dropped off at bus stops, and arrive home, about 15 minutes early. Bee-Line buses for middle and high school students retain their usual schedules. Schools and district offices are closed on Thanksgiving and Friday.
