    Emergency Closings

    When adverse weather conditions develop and result in the closing of schools, the primary communication method for district notifications will be an automated phone messaging system with the pertinent announcement.
    The following radio and TV stations will carry the announcements:
    WBEN  930 AM        WYRK  106.5 FM       Channel 2
    WBLK 93.7 FM         STAR 102.5 FM         Channel 4
    WJYE 96.1 FM          KISS 98.5 FM             Channel 7
    The phone and media announcements normally are made between 6:00 and 6:30AM and thereafter, depending on station policy.  Absence of an announcement by 7:00 AM usually indicates that Tonawanda City Schools are open.  Do not call the school or radio stations to inquire as to the closing.  Listen to the radio stations, watch the scroll of districts closed on the television, or check the district website at www.tonawandacsd.org for your information.  The fact that nearby districts close does not mean that Tonawanda will necessarily close.  Conditions of roads can vary greatly from one district to another.  There will be no use of school buildings on snow days.
    The following will be automatically cancelled:
    • Sports practices and games
    • Interscholastic contests
    • Recreation Department activities
    • Student events, such as plays, musicals, dances, and meetings
