Snow Day/Delay Communications


Gardner-Dickinson Families,


As we approach the winter season, we want to ensure that you are well informed about any potential school closures or delays due to inclement weather. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority, and we want to make sure everyone is aware of the communication channels we use to notify you.


In the event of a snow day or two-hour delay, you will receive official notifications through text messages and email. Please make sure that your contact information is up-to-date in our system to ensure you receive these important alerts promptly by contacting Kathy Fazioli in our main office at (518) 283-4600 or


Additionally, you can check for updates on our social media accounts, school website and local news stations. We will post announcements and updates on these platforms to keep you informed about any changes to the school schedule.


For families with students attending high school, please note that all transportation will run on Wynantskill’s schedule, meaning if we are closed, no transportation will be provided for the day.


Please always feel free to reach out with any questions you may have.
