Inclement Weather

A key decision that faces us each year is whether to cancel school for inclement weather. This decision involves consideration of multiple issues but, in the final analysis, it boils down to a subjective, but informed, judgment call.

In the event that Towns County School must close or delay due to inclement weather, the following notification methods will be used:

  • The Power Announcement Call System is used to call all student primary contact numbers
  • TV and Radio stations:
    • Local Channel 4
    • Fox 5 Atlanta News
    • Chanel 2 Action News Atlanta
    • 11 Alive News Atlanta
    • WJUL 97.5 FM & 1230am Hiawassee Radio
  • Central Office Recorded Message (706) 896-2279

Frigid Weather Tips:

  • Wear a winter Coat, and more than one layer of clothing
  • Make sure extremities (such as ears and hands) are covered
  • Cover mouths with scarves to protect lungs
  • Wear appropriate shoes and warm socks
  • Allow students to wait for the bus in a warm car
