Unless your child is involved in a before-school activity such as intramurals, orchestra, and/or band, please do not drop him/her off at school before 7:25 a.m. at which time all students may go to their classrooms. Teachers are not on duty until 7:25 a.m. and are often busy preparing for the day. They’ll let you know if they wish to have your child at school earlier. All children should be in class no later than 7:40 a.m.

At the discretion of the superintendent, school can be delayed, dismissed early or cancelled. If there is a delay, it is important that you continue to monitor the radio/TV because a delay may become a school closing if weather deteriorates. On delayed openings there are no before school activities. Snow/emergency closings, which normally occur at 11:30 a.m., will also be reported on the radio/TV and the Cider Mill Website at It will also be reported via school messenger. All after school activities are cancelled on early dismissal days
