Snow Days:  Due to hazardous road conditions, school may be cancelled.  RMS will use the automated notification system to let you know when there is a school cancellation, delayed opening or early closing whenever possible.  For this reason, it is very important for the school to have your most recent contact information at all times.  In addition you can listen to the following radio stations for cancellation information (given as early as 6:00am) WFSB-TV (Channel 3); WTNH-TV (Channel 8); FOX News; WVIT-TV (Channel 30).

Late Openings:  Whenever we have a delayed opening, school starting time is based upon road conditions and your local district.  Listen to your local radio stations and/or television stations to obtain this information.  For example, a one and a half-hour delay means school would begin at 9:15am and the morning bus stop time would become an hour and half-hour later, as well.

Early Closing:  When there is a weather related early dismissal, school messenger will alert families about dismissal time.   Studio will be cancelled.  The school has early dismissal every Friday as well as some additional days throughout the school year.  During December and March there are parent/teacher conferences and students will be dismissed early for the week.

***You may elect to receive text messages from the following TV Stations (WFSB, FOX CT, NBC, and WTNH).  To do this, you must log into the TV stations website and select “closings and delays” and then sign up for text alerts.  Search through the list of school names and select “Riverside Magnet School, Goodwin College”***
