CANTON -- The Canton Central School campus will be closed to visitors and non-essential staff on Friday, July 26 starting at 4 p.m.

The closure will be in effect until 8 p.m. that evening. The school phone server system will be switched to the St. Lawrence-Lewis BOCES server.

This move to the BOCES server will allow the district to save money on its phone system while also upgrading the necessary infrastructure, officials said.

During the switch, there will be a period of time when the school is without phone service.

Out of an abundance of caution, the campus will be closed for four hours to all but essential personnel since emergency phone service from school phones will see periods of interruption, the school said.
