Weather Delay

Weather Related Cancellations, Delays, and Early Dismissals

Our primary method of informing parents and faculty of school cancellations, delays, and early dismissals is via AlertNow. This system sends a telephone or email message to parents based on the information on our student database. If you have a change in phone number or email address, please contact your school office and let them know.

Local radio stations and TV stations WRTV (Channel 6), WISH-TV (Channel 8), WTHR (Channel 13), and FOX 59 broadcast all cancellations, delays, and early dismissals. Please note that in the event of school being closed or dismissed early, it is school corporation policy that ALL after-school activities are also cancelled, including athletic practices, club meetings, AAU practices, and scout meetings.
