During adverse weather conditions it is the District’s practice to make every effort within safety requirements to provide school bus transportation to private schools, parochial schools and schools for special needs that are open only when the Scarsdale Public Schools are open. If, however, the Scarsdale Public Schools close, bus transportation will not be provided.
If the Scarsdale Public Schools are opening on a delayed basis, transportation to schools located outside the District will commence on the same delayed basis. I suggest you call the district’s snow line at 721-2400, visit our website, www.scarsdaleschools.k12.ny.us, or listen to one of the following media to learn if the Scarsdale Public Schools are closed or opening on a delayed basis due to adverse weather conditions:
- WCBS 880 AM
- WHUD 100.7 FM
- WFAS 104 FM
- WOR 710 AM
- WFAS 1230 AM
- WVOX 1460 AM
- TV Channel 12 News
- TV Channel 77
- Verizon FIOS Channel 27 (Mamaroneck Strip)
There are times when weather conditions in out-of-district locations are too dangerous for travel while in-district schools remain open. Please call the district’s recorded snow line at 721-2400 or visit our website, www.scarsdaleschools.k12.ny.us to learn if buses are running to out-of-district locations.
When transportation is provided on days of extreme cold, ice, heavy rain and/or snow, school bus delays should be expected. Drivers are repeatedly instructed to drive at a speed commensurate with the prevailing road and/or weather conditions. We often experience an increased number of mechanical problems when the weather is cold and/or wet.
If you need additional information, please feel free to call 721-2433 or 721-2434.
