School Closings & Delays

If inclement weather causes school closings or bus delays, St. Mary’s will follow the same procedure as Canton Central School.  All announcements will be made over radio station WPDM-99.3 Potsdam, WSLB-1400 Ogdensburg, WSLU-89.5 Canton, and WVNC-96.7 Canton.  These announcements are usually listed on the television station WWNY – Channel 7.  This same procedure will be followed for any emergencies.  Announcements are usually made sometime between 6 AM and 8 AM unless an emergency situation arises while school is in session.

Emergency School Closings

If there is a sudden need to dismiss the whole student body during the regular school hours, a special plan of departure will be followed.  Parents will be given a form to complete in the beginning of the school year. The completed form will indicate where the parent wants his/her child to go if such an event should occur.  This information will be followed for an emergency departure. Our new School Reach parent contact system will automatically call the phone numbers indicated on emergency release forms with a recorded message. 

There is usually one drill for an emergency departure that is planned by the bus coordinator at Canton Central School.

Snow days are determined by Canton Central School, as we use their busing.  If school is open but you as a parent believe it unsafe for your child to travel, please use your own discretion, especially for those families located out of the Canton District.
