When Gowanda Central Schools close, all after school activities, play rehearsals, sporting events, adult education classes, etc. are canceled. Also, all private schools operating in the District will close. In the unlikely event of an early dismissal due to a weather emergency, parents are requested to make provisions for their children. Please make sure in advance that your children know where to go and what to do in case you are not at home when they arrive.
