Weather-Related Closings

Notification of School Cancellation/Delay/Early Dismissal 

District/school officials assess road conditions and weather forecasts and attempt to make a decision on weather-related school closings or delays before 6AM. When a school cancellation or delay decision is made, local radio and television stations are notified immediately and the information is posted to our websites and social media pages. If a decision is reached before 9PM to cancel school the following day, the School Messenger call system may be utilized to notify student homes that evening. 

In the event of early dismissal, the information will be shared via our websites and social sites, the superintendent will use School Messenger to notify parents, and the local media will be notified. 

It is the intent of Spartanburg District 2 to operate schools only when roads are safe for driving. However, the safety of road conditions at any time cannot be guaranteed. The district administration makes the decision whether or not to operate schools; parents must make the decision whether or not to send their children to school during bad weather conditions. 

Delayed Opening 

School opening may be delayed for an hour or two for conditions to improve or for school officials to further assess the weather/roads. During a delay, students and parents should stay tuned to local radio/TV broadcasts and check our websites/social pages in case the delay is extended or schools are closed for the day. When schools are on a delayed schedule, students should not arrive until the announced opening time (teachers will not be there to supervise them). If there is a one-hour delay, schools will serve breakfast; if there is a two-hour delay, they will not serve breakfast. 

Calls 

To avoid tying up telephone lines while urgent contacts are in progress, the public is urged not to call the schools, district office, or media for information. We update all of the resources listed above often so as to keep our families well informed.

The district transportation office provides a recorded update on bus schedules at 342-2046. 

Make-up Days 

School days missed due to inclement weather will be made up on the dates designated on the district academic calendar. Days in excess of the designated make-up days will be addressed as needed, including adding days to the end of the school calendar.
