Inclement Weather Policy

Inclement Weather Information
Inclement Weather Announcements

During extremely bad weather it may become necessary to cancel school, delay the opening, or close school early. The decision to cancel school or delay the opening will be made as early as possible. When the decision is made to close or delay school, parents/guardians and students are advised of that decision through the following television announcements:

  • TV - WFMY Channel 2 (CBS)
  • WGHP Channel 8 (Fox)
  • WTVD Channel 11 (ABC)
  • WXII Channel 12 (NBC)
  • News 14 Carolina

Parents and students are reminded not to call the TV stations and are asked not to call school officials, as such calls tie up telephone lines and may delay the announcement.

A decision to close school early will be made with every effort to balance appropriate notification time for parents with road conditions and safety.

Parents are encouraged to keep their student(s) home if they feel the roads are unsafe for travel. Teenagers should be discouraged from driving to/from school during inclement weather.

In case of a closing or delay

  • Before-school care will not operate on delayed opening days
  • After-school care will not operate on emergency closing days
  • Athletic games and practices will be canceled if the school is closed or dismissed early
  • Extracurricular events or meetings will be canceled if the school is closed or dismissed early
  • The school building is not open to students during the times of delayed opening or early closing, nor is it open to students if school is canceled for the day. 

Please refer to the Inclement Weather Plan in the Student/Parent Handbook
and on the Policies & Procedures webpage for complete information.
