Weather-related information

December 06, 2018

First and foremost, your child’s safety is the number one concern. Below is information about different weather-related school closings and delays.

  1. Snow Days: Snow days will usually not be determined until the morning since forecast of snow is often flawed. Mrs. Evans will be on a conference call with superintendents of neighboring school districts. A decision is usually made between 5:45-6 a.m. The announcement goes out immediately through automated call, social media (twitter [@Clifton_Central],  Facebook and Remind) and the district webpage. It will also be on local radio (WGFA, WVLI and WKAN), but it is not always timely.
  2. Cold Days: Wind chills forecasted to be -30 or lower will result in school being closed. There will be an announcement the night before based on the Clifton “feels like” wind chill forecast at weather.com (The Weather Channel).
  3. Delayed Start: In the event that weather prevents the school day to start at 8:15, but not too severe to cancel, the school will operate on a delayed (9:30 a.m.) start. That schedule is:

PERIOD         CLASS TIME                           

1                        9:30-10:06                  

3                      10:10-10:46

4                      10:50-11:26

5 (A)                 11:30-12:00 (Lunch)/

                        12:04-12:40 (Class)

5 (B)                 11:30-12:06 (Class)/

                        12:10-12:40 (Lunch)

6                      12:44-1:20

2                        1:24-2:00

7                        2:04-2:40

8                        2:44-3:17

  •  Career Center & Work Study students will dismiss at 9:50 a.m.
  • Career Center & Work Study students will attend the Career Center/Work Study during the normal time.

If school is canceled, the day will be made up at the end of the school year. The first emergency day is Thursday, May 23. The last possible day of student attendance is Wednesday, May 30.
