Emergency School Closing:

  • General Policies — In the event of an emergency dismissal, children will be sent to their homeroom to await dismissal. Students will be dismissed through the front doors only. Parents or the individual designated to pick up the student should enter through the Washington Avenue doors. Students will be called. When possible, the media will be notified that the school is dismissing early. In the event the children are unable to leave the building at the end of the school day, school personnel will be responsible to provide for the children's health and safety due to inclement weather.

  • Weather — Please listen to radio stations 1410 AM or 96.5, 102.5 and 98.5 FM for the closings. The closings are also on TV channels 2, 4, and 7.   If the Dunkirk Public Schools are closed due to bad weather, NCCS is also closed. If your home district is closed, you are NOT required to attend school. WGRZ TV Channel 2

  • Illness — Closing will be considered only when many teachers are absent due to illness and/or fifteen percent of the students are absent as a result of flu-like symptoms or other contagious illnesses.

  • NCCS can close independently of Dunkirk City School District if the principal deems it as necessary.
