Website Provides Information about Closings, Delays Due to Inclement Weather
Posted: November 15, 2000
West Virginians connected to the Internet can use their computer to learn about most school closings and delays due to inclement weather.
Earlier this year, the West Virginia Department of Education officially unveiled its School Closings/Delays Website –- http://wvde.state.wv.us/closings/ –- a site designed to provide people with on-demand, up-to-the-minute information.
“By visiting this website, teachers, students, parents and even the news media can quickly learn about school closings, delays and other announcements relayed by participating county boards of education,” said State Superintendent Dr. David Stewart. “Information will be available on our website within seconds after it is posted by personnel in participating counties.”
Dr. Stewart said that the site is not designed to supplant traditional means of communicating school closings and delays information during inclement weather, but it is being provided as an added service to county systems, school system employees, parents, students and the news media.
