Weather Delays, Cancellations and Early Dismissals

Last Updated: 4/29/2020 4:17 PM

Delayed Opening- When early morning weather conditions are severe enough to warrant a delayed opening, school starting times are delayed by two hours from their regular schedule. Central Office will deliver a delayed opening message using the district notification system to parents and staff, starting at 5:15 a.m. and will be responsible for placing the alert on:

  • Local News, Cable TV (Channel 16) and Local Radio Station
  • Waterbury Public Schools Web Site

Pre-K Schedule - Due to many different rules for AM, PM and Full Day Pre-K, School Administrators that offer such programs, will need to communicate to parents, their delayed opening policy.

Emergency/Weather Early Closing- Implemented when it becomes necessary to dismiss school early:

  • School is already in session and inclement weather will become severe enough to create hazardous road conditions during the dismissal window
  • The City or State declare a state of emergency due to unexpected hazardous conditions

An announcement will be made by 10 am by the Superintendent’s Office and school administrators will receive an email and phone call. Central office will be responsible for:

  • Contacting School Administrators
  • Sending  Alert – District or School message
  • Contacting the Bus Companies
  • Web Site Announcement
  • Channel 16/ Local TV news/local radio

After School Activities- When Waterbury Public Schools is closed or will be closing due to weather or an emergency condition, all after school activities are cancelled. If you have students that are bused to any of the offsite after school programs, School Administrators will be responsible for contacting the offsite program directors.

Magnet Schools- Busing out-of-tow students:

If Waterbury has a delayed opening but schools in your town do not, buses will run accordingly:

  • Waterbury Arts Magnet School 9:25 start time.
  • Maloney Magnet School 10:35 start time.
  • Rotella Magnet School 11:05 start time.

If school is closed in your town and Waterbury Public Schools is open, parents are responsible for transportation to school on that day. Buses will not run.

If an early dismissal is called in your town, but not in Waterbury Public Schools, we will dismiss your children when your town’s early dismissal bus arrives.
