School Closing Information

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 students' parents/guardians if the school will be delayed or canceled for a day. If you are not a parent/guardian, you can download the Ithaca Schools App and subscribe to notifications in order to be notified of cancellations or delays.
