Weather Policy

When snow or other inclement weather conditions occur, it will sometimes be necessary to cancel school, delay the opening of school, or dismiss classes early. The Wilkes County Schools Central Services will make an announcement of cancellations, delays, or dismissals as soon as a decision is made. Announcements will be made through the School Messenger System. In addition, you may listen to a local radio or television station or check Wilkes County School’s website at for information. If no announcement is made, school will open or dismiss as usual. Please do not call the school for information since telephone lines must be kept open for emergencies and other vital public service announcements when the weather is bad.

To avoid disruptions in your schedule, please complete the student inclement weather plan and make plans early in the year for your childcare arrangements in case snow, ice, or other severe weather closes school. It is very important to keep this plan up to date. If circumstances change it is the parent/legal guardian’s responsibility to let the school know of these changes.
