Students and parents can find out about school closings by checking the website of a school or school district. Some local news stations also report on area closings, and users can also sign-up for text message or email notification services from various providers to receive alerts of impending closing days.
Some news stations, such as NBC Connecticut, both report on school closings and provide notification services via email or text message alerts. NBC Connecticut has an online registration form for users to test their phones, choose notification delivery and select the schools for which they want to be notified. Users can also register an organization for this service by calling the number provided on the NBC Connecticut website.
School or school district websites may have pages that list school closings or describe closing procedures. Portland Public Schools, for example, has a simple page that lists closings as they happen. In another example, the Middlefield Children's Center gauges its closures on other schools in Regional School District 13, so check with the district to find out whether closures are going on in the rest of the district.
Kenosha Unified School District has a text alert sign-up button on its website for users to receive closing notifications. The website also provides a guide of factors that lead to school closings.
