If bad weather occurs, schools may have to reschedule their concerts. Please check with the schools to confirm if they will be holding their concerts if we have poor driving conditions.
Please note the following school notices:
Bayview Community School - the Monday, December 9 evening concert will be postponed until Wednesday, December 11 at 7:00pm
Newcombville Elementary School - In the event school is cancelled on Tuesday, December 10th, our Christmas Concert will be held on Monday, December 16th. This will allow us to have a dress rehearsal on Wednesday, December 11th.
Have you ever wondered how the decision to cancel school, or dismiss early, due to bad weather is made? Check out the SSRSB Snow Day Video, where Superintendent Geoff Cainen, along with Denise Crouse, Coordinator of Transportation, and Una Rhodenizer, Bus Driver, explains the many considerations made when making this important decision.
A special thanks to Ian Kent, Josh Wilson and Jen Parks of Queens County Adult High School for producing the video!
