“NO SCHOOL” and “DELAYED OPENING” INFORMATION

 

 

It is the School Committee’s policy to close schools when the weather conditions are so severe

as to make it a safety concern for the buses and for children walking to and from school.  When

a decision has been made to CANCEL or DELAY the opening of school, parents will receive an automated message from our Connect-Ed telephone messaging system.  Announcements will also be broadcast on the following TV and radio stations:

 

Channel 4 TV News & WBZ Radio 1030 AM

Channel 5 TV News - Announcements are Posted HERE

Channel 7 TV News & WRKO Radio 680 AM

Channel 25 TV News WFXT

 

Parents may also check the district website:  www.georgetown.k12.ma.us.  [Please do not call the Fire or Police Departments for information regarding school cancellations.]
