When the weather looks threatening or like snow, we will make a decision about closing school or delaying opening as soon as possible–preferably the evening before but certainly by 6 am. We communicate that decision primarily through an email message.
Other modes of communication include: an automated phone call to your home; a posting on the school’s website; Facebook; Twitter, Instagram; a voicemail announcement on the school’s main number (call the main number, 336-722-2777); an announcement on radio station WFDD (88.5 FM) and wfdd.org; and announcements on TV stations WXII (NBC Channel 12) and WGHP (Fox Channel 8). No message means school will open on the regular schedule.
In all weather-related situations, please note that regardless of the school’s decision, we will always honor your decision as a parent to keep children home should you determine that road conditions are unsafe.
If snow starts to fall during the school day, we will communicate our decision to close school in the manners described above as soon as possible. In this instance, please refrain from calling the school since we need open phone lines.
Late opening: If we expect travel conditions to improve enough to permit school to open a little later in the morning, we’ll announce a delayed opening time (either a one- or two-hour delay). Again, we will communicate this decision as described above.
