In case of snow or other potentially hazardous weather or emergency situations, we may close or delay school. WCPSS makes the decision after consulting the National Weather Service, local weather forecasters, and area law enforcement.
Schools will be open on their regular schedule unless otherwise announced. As soon as the decision is made, WCPSS will:
- notify local radio and television stations
- update websites' front pages
- notify our parents through voicemail, email, and texts
If the weather is bad enough to make a decision the day or night before, we will do so in time for the 11 p.m. newscasts. Otherwise, a decision will be made at 4:45 a.m.
