Nov. 19: weekly update

A message from Superintendent Wiles:

Dear Guilderland CSD Families,

There’s a chill in the air which reminds us that winter isn’t too far off and with winter, comes snow. I would like to remind you of the Guilderland Central School District’s inclement weather procedures. Schools will be closed when snow or poor road conditions make travel difficult or impossible. School closings, delayed openings and early dismissals resulting from weather conditions will be posted on the homepage of the website and sent out via SchoolMessenger. You can find additional information on the GCSD website.
