20-21 School Year Emergency Days

November 13, 2020

Dear LLCS Families:

While the 60-plus temps have been nice over the past week, it appears Mother Nature is starting to move toward her typical winter trends.

With that said, I am writing to clarify our emergency day (snow day) procedures for this school year. We have three emergency days built into our school calendar and if/when we need to use one, we will use them. In sum, we will have regular snow days this year. We do not plan to put remote learning in place of snow days if they are needed.

If we are in a position where we may need more than three emergency days, we will consider the option of remote learning as opposed to pulling the needed days from planned vacation periods. At the end of the day we are required to have 180 days of school, so if we need to use more than three days we will cross that bridge when we get it.

As for a delay schedule, in the event of a delay, we most often utilize a two hour delay. There are instances where a one hour delay may be practical, but it is uncommon. The math is pretty simple - just add two hours (or one hour if that's the case) onto your regular times for bus pick-up and our arrival times. For example, in the instance of a two hour delay our K-6 students will have an arrival time of 9:40 a.m. and our 7-12 students will start at 10:45 a.m. We do not have PK on days that we delay, and any information on BOCES will be communicated in the One Call Now.

Any emergency day closure and delay information will be communicated with all families via our One Call Now system. We will also share this with local news stations, on our Facebook page, and on our website. The robo call always goes out first, so please make sure that we always have your most up-to-date phone numbers so you don't miss this important information!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.


Ms. Noelle J. Short
