There may be times when the weather will cause schools to have a delayed opening, or close for the day. These decisions will generally be made by 5:30 am. All delays and closings will be posted on the district’s website at www.southcountry.org, and the district will place a phone call through ConnectEd to your home or cell phone notifying you of any closings or delayed opening. The information will also be broadcast on the following stations:

 WALK 97.5 FM  WBAB 102.3 FM  WBZO 103.1 FM
 WRCN 103.9 FM  WBLI 106.1 FM  Channel 12 News

In a 2-hour delayed opening:

  • Staff should arrive as soon as possible. Please be sure to use caution during your commute and plan to arrive to   your building as soon as possible and within the 2 hour time delay.
  • All school start times and bus pick-up times for students will be delayed 2-hours
  • AM Pre-K at Brookhaven will be cancelled, with PM at its normal start time
  • AM Alternative School at South Haven will be cancelled, with PM at its normal start time

First and foremost, student and staff safety is our greatest concern in bad weather. A delayed opening will give local authorities additional time to clear the roadways, give our staff additional time to prepare our schools, and it will allow students and staff additional time to get to school safely.
