    Inclement Weather Protocol


    It is desirable for Montgomery County Schools to make announcements regarding school schedules by 5:30 am. When inclement weather is a strong possibility or reality, one of three decisions will be made by the school administration. We will run school as scheduled, delay, or close. No announcement means "school as usual."


    In the event Montgomery County experiences inclement weather that will result in school delays or closings, an automated phone message will be sent out to students and staff members from our AlertNow system. School administrators and bus drivers will be notified at approximately 5:30 am. Parents, teachers and support staff will be notified at approximately 6:00 am.


    The safety of our students and employees is our primary concern.  If parents feel conditions are unsafe in their area, they should keep their children at home.  Also, MCS employees should always err on the side of safety and should only attempt to travel to work when they feel it is safe.


    School delay or closing information will also be available on our website: www.montgomery.k12.nc.us.
