Emergency Release Drill Tuesday, Nov. 23

All students in the Greater Johnstown School District will be dismissed from school fifteen (15) minutes early on Tuesday, November 23, 2021, as part of a drill for the School Emergency Management Plan. The buildings must be vacated for an hour during the drill. Therefore, all after school activities will be postponed for one hour following the release time in each building. School personnel will also be released early so parents must make arrangements for their children.

The drill, which is held in accordance with the NYS Departmetn of Education regulations, will test the usefulness of communictions and transportation systems during an emeregency. As part of the drill that day, we will be sending a message testing our Parent Square Emergency Notification System. Parents are asked to contact their child’s school office if they do not receive a message.

Non-public and special education students who do not attend Johsntown schools will also be dismissed 25 mintues early so that bus routes can remain the same.

If you have any questions, please contact your child’s principal.
