New dismissal procedures at Albany High, ALC

ALBANY, N.Y. (Oct. 14, 2016) -- The City School District of Albany is putting in place important new practices at Albany High School and the Alternative Learning Center to address safety for students after school. The district is taking these steps in an effort to reduce large groups of students and others gathering on the way home from school in the afternoon.

 

The safety of all students is a top priority throughout the City School District of Albany. School and district staff continue to work together with CDTA and Albany Police Department personnel to ensure safety for our students.

 

Beginning Monday, Oct. 17, the following practices will take effect:

  • CDTA buses will not pick up students from 3-4:15 p.m. on school days at the following two bus stops:

    • Washington Avenue and Quail Street

    • Quail and Benson streets

  • Albany High students who rely on bus transportation to get home from school are strongly encouraged to ride the CDTA “tripper” buses available in Albany High’s back parking lot at dismissal.

    • Please remind your student that this special CDTA service for Albany High students only is there for their safety and convenience.

  • Albany High students who leave the building at dismissal will not be readmitted after 3:05 p.m. to participate in after-school clubs and programs.

  • The start and end times for students in all programs at the Alternative Learning Center, located at 50 North Lark St., will change Oct. 17 to better align with the start and end times at Albany High School.  Please visit the Alternative Learning Center page for more information.

 

"We appreciate your support and cooperation as we work together to ensure the safety of all of our students each day," said Albany High Acting Principal Dale Getto. "Please contact me or your student’s academy principal at school anytime if you have additional questions or concerns about these new practices."

 

For questions related to the Alternative Learning Center, please contact Principal Sophia Newell at 475-6525.

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves more than 9,600 students in 17 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
