Welcome to Forts Ferry – Home of the Lions!

The arrival bell rings at 8:40 a.m., and students arriving by bus or being dropped off enter the building. Students who are located in the “walk zone” are to walk to the school’s main entrance no earlier than this time. There is no supervision before school for those who are not directly part of the Colonie Youth Center’s Before/After School Program. The official academic day at Forts Ferry is from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Since we are encouraging independence in our students, parents and/or guardians who walk their child(ren) to school are asked to say their “good-byes” in the foyer of the main entrance. If a student arrives to school after the official arrival period after 8:50 a.m., a parent or guardian will need to walk the student into school and report to the main office. At the end of the school day, dismissal by bus and parent pick-up begins at 3:15 p.m. Students walking home are dismissed prior to the buses being loaded for the ride home.
