Schools use a variety of media to announce closures or delays, including television, cell phones, social media, websites and radio stations. Each school is different, but many have started using more modern technology to get the messages delivered.
To learn about school closures or delays, students and parents can sometimes have a text message sent directly to their cell phones. They can also visit the school's website or check for email announcements. If the closure is weather related, students and parents may turn on the TV and watch the local weather channel, as it is usually announced there. School calendars are also good resources for scheduled closure information, such as holidays and teacher workdays.
