In the event that schools are closed due to severe weather or other emergency situations, the school district will provide the information to local radio stations and area television stations.
Once these stations have been notified, some Atlanta radio and television stations are notified, at their request. We will also post school closing information on our web site. In addition, notifications will be sent out via email to all CCSD employees, as well as all parents and community members signed up for a district listserv. To sign up, please visit http://www.clarke.parentlink.net.
Every effort will be made to relay school closing information to Athens radio stations by 6 a.m. the morning of the closing. Parents should make prior arrangements for someone to be at home when young children are dismissed for weather emergencies.
