IMPORTANT MESSAGE from Superintendent Dr. Maloney Regarding Weather Procedures

Dear Tamarac Families,

We would first like to thank you for your continued support as we work to keep your children safe throughout the winter months. The safety of our students, faculty, and staff is always our first priority, and we appreciate your patience as we make these important decisions based on the weather patterns and transportation routes throughout our district.

With this said, we would like to note that the forecast for this evening into tomorrow shows a significant ice threat in the Capital Region and surrounding areas. Because of this, along with predicted wintry weather throughout tomorrow morning into the afternoon, there may be a possibility for a two-hour delay or an early dismissal for all Brunswick CSD schools. If there is an early dismissal called for Brunswick CSD, please note the following:

– Families will be contacted as soon as possible in the case of an early dismissal via text message and/or eNews email update. Online posts will also be made to the district’s website, Facebook page, and Twitter account in the case of an early dismissal. Please be sure to check any of these outlets throughout the morning.

– In the case of an early dismissal, Tamarac Middle-High School students will be released at 10:30 AM. Students will be dismissed in the same way that they are on a regular day (either by bus, pick up, or can drive themselves home), unless a parent/guardian has contacted the school with alternative plans. If you have any questions, please contact Laura Perfetti at 518-279-4600 ext 2205.

– Tamarac Elementary School students will be released at 11:40 AM. Students will be transported to the locations listed on the blue emergency forms handed in at the beginning of the school year. There will be no aftercare, and staff will work to ensure there is someone home for your child. If you have any questions, please contact Laurie Gosse at 518-279-4600 ext. 2002 or Colleen Sargood at 518-279-4600 ext 2003.

– Faculty and staff will be dismissed once all students are safely out of the building and are being transported home.

Once again, thank you for your understanding and support.

Best Regards,

Dr. Angelina Maloney
Brunswick CSD
