    WARWICK — As a result of the injury and loss of life to several Orange County children which occurred during severe weather conditions, the Commissioner of Education has mandated that all schools in the state develop an Emergency Management Plan and participate in an early dismissal drill on an annual basis.
    The Warwick Valley School District has scheduled its annual test of the early dismissal drill for Wednesday, Sept. 20.
    All pupils will be released 15 minutes earlier than their normally scheduled time in order to test the early dismissal response of the district's emergency management plan.
    The p.m. section of the before/after school care programs will not be in session on this day.
    Please make appropriate arrangements for the early arrival of your children as a result of this drill.
