Delayed Opening Procecures

During the winter months, morning road conditions may cause school bus delays.  When this occurs, a DELAYED OPENING PROCEDURE will be put into effect. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE TRANSPORTATION OFFICE REGARDING DELAYS.  Announcements will be made over radio stations: WHUD-FM (100.7), WLNA-AM (1420), WFAS-FM (103.9), WCBS-AM (880), Channel 12 Cablevision, the district’s website (www.lakelandschools.org) and the district’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/lakelandschooldistrict ).  You will also be notified by the automated phone system.  Students who do not use the buses should NOT arrive prior to the delayed opening starting time for their respective school, as noted below.  The start of school may be delayed 1, 2 or 3 hours, depending on conditions at the time.  See schedule below for details. 

Thank you.
Dr. George E. Stone, Superintendent
