What if it snows?
In the event of bad weather, LLI follows the decisions made by the Red Hook Central Schools District. When the District cancels classes, LLI will also cancel its classes. When the District delays the start of classes by two hours, LLI first-period classes will be cancelled; the second period will start, as usual, at 10:10 a.m.
- For Intersession, morning and afternoon are both cancelled when the schools are closed, but begin at the usual 11:00 a.m. time when classes are delayed.
- Members can check the Red Hook School District website redhookcentralschools.org or cancellations.com or call 845 758-2241 for information.
