When are closings for schools announced?

If it is a temporary closing for a day because of in-climate weather, the announcement will be made as soon as the decision is made, but in advance of when students would be getting ready for school. Usually, both the local radio station and television station will announce or post the closings as they come in and repeat the list every few minutes.

If it is a permanent closing, the announcement will be made whenever the decision to close the school is made. Usually, there are public meetings beforehand, so people are aware of the possible closing and can voice their concerns and opinions about it.
