School Closings Procedure

With winter weather just around the corner, we want to remind all families of our school closing procedures.

We will follow the closing or delay decision of Taconic Hills School District in case of inclement weather. When they are closed, we will close. If they are on either a one-hour or two-hour delay, then so is Hawthorne Valley. Closings and delays are placed on the school website ( and school voice mail, 518-672-7092, by 6:30am. Early dismissals will be placed on the website and recorded on the School Information Line as soon as a decision to close early is made. PLEASE NOTE: on mornings when school closings or delays are likely, we recommend that you check our website or call the School Information Line 518-672-0042. HVS closings are also sent to the Times Union website, or the following television or radio stations: Television stations WRGB (channel 6), WTEN (channel 10), and WNYT (channel 13). Radio stations carrying these announcements include WGY (810 AM), WHUC (1230 AM), and WSBS (860 AM) will also have the school delay or closing information.
