School Closing - How Decision is Made


School Closing/Delay Procedures for Inclement Weather
The Superintendent and the Transportation Director take very seriously the safe transportation of our students and staff.  When forecasts call for inclement weather, the decision to close school is based on the following: current weather/road conditions from a network of district administrators, weather spotters throughout the county, law enforcement, state & county road crews and other school officials in adjoining counties. Decisions are based solely on the safety of our children and we will always err on the side of caution.

When a decision is made to close or delay schools, our  goal is to get the information out to media sources as quickly as possible.  

Emergency closing/delay information sources:

Sendit Messaging System Calls

District  Webpage



WBKO-TV (13) / WTVF-TV (5) / WKRN-TV(2) / WSMV-TV (4) / WDRB-TV (41)

WCLU-Radio / WHHT-WOVO Radio / WGGC Radio / WBVR Radio


NOTE:  When schools are closed look for the NTI announcements given by teachers.  We ask that parents do not telephone the schools or the district office for information pertaining to the operation of schools on days of inclement weather due to limited staffing in our offices.  These calls may delay our ability to notify school staff and the public of important decisions in a timely manner.  Please tune in to your local television and radio stations for this information.
