Emergency school closings will be announced by the local radio and TV stations and posted on social media sites (Facebook and Twitter). Information about emergency school closings is put on the air as soon as it is available. Please do not call the schools or the radio or TV stations to inquire if schools will be closed.

In addition, an automated service will call or text emergency school closings, delays or other announcements. This system uses the current phone numbers parents have given the school. Please let the school know if your contact information changes or if you do not receive messages from this system.

Parents are ultimately responsible for the health and safety of their children. On days of severely inclement weather when school is in session, if the parent reports to the school that their child was kept home because they felt going to school would endanger the child's health or safety, the absence will be counted the same as an excused absence.
