School Closing/Cancellation

Student and Staff safety is of the utmost importance when canceling school. Ithaca Public Schools utilizes technology to notify our staff and student's parents/guardians if school will be delayed or canceled for a day. Due to the database system we use, this "auto-notification technology" is not able to be utilized by community members without a student enrolled. 

In the event of a school delay, cancelation, or early closure due to inclement weather or any other unforeseen event, please check the following:

During severe weather, parents may come to school to pick up their children if they prefer to have children at home. Children will be released only to parents unless written permission is given by parent and approved by the office.
