Weather Watch

The safety of all children is our first concern if school must be closed or delayed due to the weather conditions.

Here are some important things to remember:

*The decision to have a delayed opening or school closing will be made as early as possible by the Buncombe County School Superintendent.

*Tune in to area radio and television stations for the announcement. Please do not call schools, Central offices, or the news media...You can also check online at : or

Weather conditions sometimes worsen during the day after children have arrived at school. If early dismissal of schools is necessary, local radio and television stations will make the announcement. In addition, Buncombe County Schools’ School Messenger will be activated. For this reason it is extremely important to keep us informed of current phone numbers. Working parents are advised to plan ahead and make special provisions for child care for those days when schools must be dismissed early.

Please indicate on the student information sheet the procedures the school should follow for your child in the event of an early dismissal. Please advise us of any changes or updates in this procedure.
