Closings & Delays

For all CPS parents please make sure your current email address and phone number are up to date within PowerSchool.  In the case of a delayed opening, cancellation, or early dismissal CPS will contact all parents via ParentSquare.    

Arrangements have been made with a number of radio and television stations to broadcast DELAYED OPENING/NO SCHOOL/EARLY DISMISSAL ANNOUNCEMENTS. We ask that parents and students tune in to one of the following stations when weather conditions indicate that school sessions might be affected. If the Cheshire Public Schools delay opening, there will be a standard 2-hour delay*.  PLEASE DO NOT CALL the schools, police or radio/tv stations.  After 5:30 a.m. parents may call 250-2410 for a recorded announcement. Radio and television stations will broadcast school cancellations starting as early as 5:45 a.m.  However, in the event that a delay or cancellation is not called, parents are encouraged to keep children home if they deem local neighborhood conditions unsafe for travel to schools.
