District-Wide School Safety Plan

Emergency Closings


Developed in accordance with New York State Education Law, the plan addresses various emergency situations including the general steps to follow for each.  It is available for viewing at the Superintendent’s Office and in the main offices of Daniel Warren, F.E. Bellows, Rye Neck Middle School, and Rye Neck High School.
 
Each school has an Emergency Response Plan, specifically designed to meet the individual school’s needs.  The Emergency Response Plans include an Emergency Response Team comprised of school staff and community members that will be put into action if there is an emergency situation.  For the protection of students, staff and community, Emergency Response Plans are not available for public view.
 
If an actual emergency should occur during school hours or during extra-curricular activities, instructions for picking up your children will be announced on the local radio stations WFAS (1230 AM, 103.9 FM, or 106.3 FM), WVOX (1460 AM)), CBS (880 AM), or Channel 12 on TV. Emergency Information can also be found on the District Website, www.ryeneck.org.  Phone calls also may be made by school personnel.
 
To find out if Rye Neck Schools are closed or delayed due to inclement weather, you will can to listen to the local radio stations WFAS (1230 AM, 103.9 FM, or 106.3 FM), WVOX (1460 AM)), CBS (880 AM), or Channel 12 on TV. Closing Information can also be found on the District Website, www.ryeneck.org.  In addition, an automated call will be made to each household with school closing information.
 
The radio, TV and school website are your best source of information during emergencies because police and school phone lines tend to be tied up at that time.  Do not try to call or go to your child’s school building unless instructed, as this could impede emergency procedures.
