Oswego Schools Set Emergency Closing & Delay Procedures

OSWEGO, NY – The  season for inclement weather has arrived and  once again the Oswego City School District is preparing for emergency closing and delay situations.

As in the past, a variety of communication venues will be used in the event that school is closed or delayed.

The district desires to make a decision to close or delay by 5:30 a.m. and as always this message will be delivered through the numerous communications outlets.

The School Messenger system has been a tremendous addition to the communication between home and school.

The district will once again be implementing this service for delays, closings or other emergency situations.

To assist the Oswego community, the district officials have indicated that in the event of any emergency situation there is a complete information network available for residents, staff and students.

In the event of inclement weather, that might be clearing, the Oswego City School District will initiate the plan for a two-hour delay.

However, adverse conditions will result in schools being closed.

The area media continues to cooperate with the Oswego City School District to provide up to the minute information in regards to emergency closing or delays.

Early morning television viewers can find out about school delays and closings on Central New York television stations.

The Syracuse television stations that will broadcast information about the closing or delays include WSYR-TV9, WSTM-TV3, WTVH-TV5 and News10Now.

Once again a variety of radio stations will carry the emergency closing information.

Residents can tune to radio stations who have volunteered to supply the community with this important information.

Announcements and notices will be broadcast on  Y94 (94.5 FM), WBBS (104.7 FM), HOT107.9 (107.9 FM), WSYR (57 AM), WHEN (62 AM), WNTQ (93.0 FM), WAQX/95X (95.7 FM), WTKW (99.5 FM), TK99 (105.5 FM), and K-rock (100.9 FM) and WRVOFM (89.9).

However, the World Wide Web will also be an avenue for information about school closings as the Oswego City School District officials will update the home page www.oswego.org as the need arises.

The local media websites will also have the updated information in regards to delays and closings.

Local residents can also call 341-2000 for information about closings and delays.

In the event that there is an emergency closing all Oswego City School District buildings will be closed.

Also, all after school activities will be cancelled.

Because of so many issues involving the health and safety of students, community and staff there can be no exceptions to this.

Parents and students continue to have many outlets for information in regards to emergency closing and delays of Oswego’s schools.

It is the goal of district officials to keep the community informed and the students safe.
