Weather-Related School Closings and Delays

When inclement weather situations exist, school officials assess road conditions and weather forecasts and attempt to make a decision on school closings or delays before 6:00 a.m. Once a decision is made, the following radio and television stations are notified:

Television Stations
WLOS Asheville (Channel 13)
WYFF Greenville (Channel 4)
WSPA Spartanburg (Channel 7)
WHNS Greenville (Channel 21)

Radio Stations
WSPA 98.9 FM/950 AM
WESC 92.5 FM/660 AM
WMMZ 1400 AM
WJMZ 107.3 FM
WMYI 102.5 FM
WSSL 100.5 FM
WOLT 103.3 FM

To avoid tying up telephone lines while urgent contacts are in progress, please do not call the schools, district office, or media for information.

School opening may be delayed for an hour or two for conditions to improve or for school officials to further assess the weather/roads. During the delay, students and parents should listen to the radio in case the delay is extended or schools are closed. When schools are on a delayed schedule, teachers will not be at the schools until the announced time. Therefore, students should not arrive until the announced opening time. If there is a one-hour delay, schools will serve breakfast. They will not serve breakfast on a two-hour delay. 4K morning classes do not meet if school is delayed.

The District Two transportation office provides a voice mail service for updates on bus schedules. To access the voice mail message, dial 461-9888.

It is the intent of Spartanburg County school districts to operate schools only when roads are safe for driving. However, schools cannot guarantee the safety of road conditions at any time. The school district administration makes the decision whether or not to operate schools. Parents must make the decision whether or not to send their children to school during bad weather conditions.

All days missed due to inclement weather will be made up at the end of the school year or on staff development days, as appropriate.
