• Emergency Notification Procedures

    When the Superintendent or his designee determines that a condition exists that warrants a school closing, delayed opening, or early dismissal, parents, faculty, and staff will be notified through the GNPS ParentLink System. Information can also be obtained by viewing the district Web site, listening to TV and radio stations, or calling a school Emergency Telephone Number.

    ParentLink is an emergency notification system that allows the district to contact thousands of parents, faculty, and staff by phone, e-mail, and/or text message in a short period of time.

    The District Web site (https://www.greatneck.k12.ny.us) will display emergency announcements on a red background in white text on the top of the home page.

    Emergency Plans and Drill Procedures

    A District-Wide Comprehensive Safety Plan and Building-Level Safety Plans are in use and updated annually. At least once a year, each school conducts a test of its emergency plan, including transportation and communication procedures. Tests are done in cooperation with local emergency management officials, when possible. Parents/guardians will be informed in writing at least one week prior to such drills. Students and staff receive information about the school’s procedures each year.
