Snow Goes High Tech

December 11, 2003

CHARLESTON, W.Va. Ė As the snowflakes fall, find out if you have to pick up your child from school. The West Virginia Department of Education offers an additional option for parents to learn of any changes in their childrenís daily school schedule. Snow, flooding or utility problems can cause schools to cancel, delay their morning start or dismiss early sending students home and causing concern among parents or other caregivers.  

With a link located on the West Virginia Department of Educationís website, parents and citizens may subscribe to receive email messages announcing any school cancellations, delays or early closures. The link was designed so this information could be received in a timely manner, therefore, providing ample time for parents to make arrangements for their children.  

Catering to individual counties, recipients will only receive information for the counties that they select. If a subscriber would like to receive announcements regarding multiple counties, he or she can elect to subscribe to each county individually. Citizens who wish to receive email notifications should visit the state Department of Educationís website at
