Inclement Weather

Weather Related Closing Information

 In case of inclement weather conditions, the operation of schools and school buses may have to be changed. A decision to delay the opening of school or closing of schools for that day due to inclement weather will affect all schools throughout the Randolph County System.

 Whenever there is a chance of hazardous weather, please listen to one of the area radio or television stations late in the evening and early morning for an announcement concerning school closings. Announcements will also be posted on our website and will be sent out via our instant telephone messaging system for the entire system (staff and parents).

 The decision to close school, or to operate a delayed schedule, will be announced by 5:30 a.m. The announcement will designate one of two plans:

a.) School will be closed for students with make-up day(s) as designated on the school calendar.

b.) The opening of school will be delayed for one (1), or two (2), hours to allow improvement in road conditions. (Please note that closing may still occur due to continued hazardous weather conditions even after a delay.)

 The absence of any announcement means that school will operate on a regular schedule.

 If snow or other bad weather begins after school is in session, school may be dismissed early to permit students to be driven home before conditions become dangerous. Listen for announcements from local radio, television stations and our instant telephone messaging system or check our website at

 If you are unable to get information or have some questions as to the possibility of early dismissal, call your child's school or the Randolph County Schools - Central Services at 336-318-6100
