• School Closing Information

    Should the school close for any reason, the District will send an emergency message to affected households through an automated phone notification system as well as the use of social media and the District website.  School closings will also be broadcasted over the following radio and television stations:

    • WBEN - Radio 930 AM
    • WGRZ - Channel 2
    • WIVB - Channel 4
    • WKBW - Channel 7
    • Spectrum News - Channel 9

    Announcements will normally be given between 6:00 and 6:30 a.m. and will be repeated.  Unless otherwise noted, all scheduled use of schools is cancelled on a day that school is closed.  All parents, especially working parents, should instruct students where to go if schools are dismissed unexpectedly during the day.  When school is closed, all related activities - athletic events, field trips, extracurricular activities, and Community  Education classes - will also be cancelled.  Also, when Alden Schools are closed due to inclement weather conditions, Alden school buses will not transport any students, regardless of the school they attend.
