Emergency Closing InformationCheck the ACS Home Page for current school closing infoOccasionally, it is necessary to close schools due to adverse weather conditions. The Superintendent of Schools makes this decision based on information from the Transportation Supervisor and in consultation with the State Police who monitor road conditions. Every effort is made to make the decision as early in the morning as possible.
Akron Central Schools has a Parent Notification System called Power Announcement. Once the decision is made to close school, Power Announcement will be used to make phone calls to all district families as well as faculty and staff. District families have the option of providing up to four phone numbers to be included in the call system. If you would like to update the numbers you have provided, please contact the District Registrar at 542-5039.
When Akron Central School is closed, Akron school buses will not transport any students, regardless of the school they attend. When schools are closed, all activities are cancelled within the building and all sports trips and field trips are also cancelled. Due to child care issues, school will normally dismiss at regularly scheduled times, even in the event of bad weather. Only the most extreme conditions warrant the early dismissal of students. The decision may be made, however, to cancel after-school activities. Please turn to one of the following radio or television stations for school closing information and/or cancellation of after-school activities:
