NO SCHOOL  - until December 1


This has been a very treacherous week for everyone in the southtowns. I hope every one of our families made it through the storm without too much incident. So many scary and funny stories are being told. This is a storm we will remember for years to come.


The  amount and weight of the snow and the possible structural damage to buildings of the Frontier Central School District made it necessary for the superintendent close school until December 1. Just a reminder, that  whenever Frontier or Lake Shore close, we are closed.

Therefore we will not have school until December 1.


We will have a full day of school on Friday, Dec. 19 Monday, Dec. 22 & Tuesday Dec. 23  because both districts will be in session and our students will be provided transportation.  


A special thank you to Fr. Peter and his staff for their care and concern for the safety of our students, teachers and staff. They have been very busy getting the parking lots cleared and making certain the buildings are safe. The structural engineer has done an inspection of the church and school buildings. All are safe and sound.


Keep warm and be safe. 


Wishing all our families and friends a blessed Thanksgiving.
