With the arrival of such cold air, we know that snow may be coming sooner rather than later this year! Although this is rare, LCA will close or delay opening when the roads are unusually dangerous in the morning. LCA may also take the unusual step of dismissing early if an unexpected storm comes in and the roads appear to be getting worse in the afternoon.
Our school will generally follow the schedule of the North Colonie School District since they have more information available to them than we do. From time to time, however, we may do something different. We encourage you to monitor local media for our school specifically. When we need to change our schedule, we will send an email to all families and notify local media. Most area TV stations will carry this information on the air and online. One site we recommend is WNYT Channel 13: https://wnyt.com/closings/. You can even download their app to your phone and receive notifications whenever LCA posts a schedule change.
LCA also provides a voice phone call for school closings and major schedule changes. You will need to sign up for this service, even if you have received these notifications in the past. To help make this service affordable, we do limit this to one phone number per family. Most phone calls are generated early in the morning (generally between 5 AM and 6:15 AM.) If you would like to receive this phone call, please complete the request form on our website: http://s.lcany.org/snow.
