Annual Early Release Drill

As prescribed by the Commissioner of Education, the Lockport City School District is conducting an annual exercise of its emergency early dismissal plan.


The exercise will be conducted on Friday, October 18, 2019.


All in-district students attending schools in the Lockport City School District in grades K-12 will be released 15 minutes earlier than their regularly scheduled dismissal time.


This exercise is to test certain aspects of the school district’s “Emergency Management Plan”. All athletic activities and before and after school programs with the YWCA/YMCA will continue. All other after school activities will be cancelled. Please make necessary arrangements for your child’s early dismissal on the above scheduled date.


This is also a time to make sure your entire family is prepared to make alternate arrangements should weather or other such emergencies dictate an early dismissal.


We have mass notifications capabilities to contact you for urgent matters. This system will call the main telephone number we have listed for your family. Please update your information if needed by calling 478-4811 or emailing jwieland@lockportschools.net.
