Delayed Opening Procedures & Closings Due to Weather

The West Islip Board of Education approved a delayed school opening for days of inclement weather. The implementation of a delayed schedule offers the district additional time to clear and sand all district driveways and parking lots. This two-hour delay will also provide adequate time for students and staff to arrive safely to their buildings. When school must be closed or delayed two hours due to weather conditions, a ParentSquare message will be sent and announcements will be made  over the following radio stations:

News 12 Long Island
WBAB 102.3 FM
WBLI 106.1 FM
WALK 97.5 FM
WBZO 103 FM/ WHLI 1100 AM / WRCK 103.9 FM / WKJOY98.3

If you would like to receive text message and/or emails regarding delayed openings and/or school closures, contact the IT help desk at (631) 930-1573.  A staff member will be able to assist you with enrolling in the ParentSquare messaging system.

Contact your building principal with any question regarding the delayed opening process.
