Alexander County Schools will be on a three-hour delay tomorrow, Friday, December 13 for students and staff. This delay is due to the forecast of rain with freezing temperatures. The elementary early dismissal has changed and all schools, including elementary schools, will dismiss at the regular time. Our weather team will assess road conditions in the morning and update you if there are any changes. Thank you for your support and for helping us keep safety as our top priority. Be safe! Before school care will also operate on a three-hour delay.

Our school system is in the process of transitioning to a new automated call notification system. Our goal is to inform families regarding school delays and cancellations as soon as possible. We are currently using a temporary system that will be in place for a couple of months. As you know this is also the timeframe when inclement weather is possible. Our weather team is already tracking the weather system forecasts in our area. We will make any announcement of school delays or closings as soon as feasible and through several methods. We will initiate the call system, post on the district website and social media as well as contact local media outlets with our announcement. These are all done simultaneously – so you may see the social media posting before you get your call. In some situations, calls may be delayed or abandoned if the call system receives an error message that your cell number is temporarily out of service or out of the service area. These messages are transmitted from cell carriers during high volume events and may cause you not to receive the automated call. We encourage you to be proactive when weather conditions are favorable for freezing temperatures, snow or ice, high winds, flooding or other weather-related events – listen for your automated call but also check the website, social media and the local news if inclement weather is in the forecast. Please check out our weather plan under the Parents and Students tab.
