WV Department of Education Reminds Residents To Stay Connected During Snow Events

HAGERSTOWN, MD - Now that fall weather has arrived, and as we experienced last year, snow can happen earlier than usual, and folks in Charleston, West Virginia are wanting to remind residents in the Mountain State that they can stay connected with school closings and delays as they happen.

The West Virginia Department of Education is encouraging parents and students to sign up for online and mobile notification services, so they receive alerts to when their schools are closed with snow hits the region.

"The West Virginia Department of Education utilizes multiple tools to keep parents informed and ultimately assure student safety." said West Virginia Superintendent of Schools Jorea Marple.  "During the winter months, inclement weather can result in unexpected changes in school operations and schedules.  It is again that time of year to prepare for possible school closings, delays and early dismissals."

Residents of West Virginia can go to the West Virginia Department of Education School Closing Website to view the most up to date closings as well as sign up for alerts for when their schools are closed, and also follow them on Twitter (@WVSnowDay)

WHAG also tracks winter weather as it happens, keeping an eye on the potential for adverse weather conditions that can hamper your travel plans and cause school closings and delays as well.
