In the event of inclement weather, weather conditions will be monitored in consultation with local Emergency Preparedness and law enforcement and, as a general rule, a school closure decision will be made by 5:00 A.M. The decision will be made to close schools, operate under a two-hour delay, or open schools as normal. The following television and radio stations will be notified about the school closure decision. Please tune in to these stations for the latest school closure information.

In the event of early school closure, West Carolina Telephone Cooperative will also be contacted in addition to the above television and radio stations. Once the early dismissal decision is made, schools will call the parents of students to notify them of the early dismissal decision.
