Temporary school closings are reported on district websites, local news stations, and via mobile alert notifications. Nationwide closings due to weather are tracked online through websites such as Cancellations.com.
Local school districts host individual school websites, and cancellations are updated as they occur. Local news stations often broadcast closings. When multiple closings occur, many stations provide a running ticker at the bottom of the screen. Often, districts provide both email and text options to alert communities to temporary closings. Signing up for these options is typically possible through the local district.
Many schools also have social media pages. It is not uncommon for closings to be posted to Facebook, or even tweeted on Twitter. Local school administrators can identify all potential options available.
