Transportation Director, Eric Barker, will communicate conditions to the Superintendent and the decision will be made. Please remember that all decisions about school closings or delays are made at the district level. Concerns about decisions should be directed to Central Services, not individual schools.
Parents, please caution your teen drivers. It is not possible for us to check every road in Wilkes County. There may be icy roads at times due to changing road conditions. All drivers, especially our teen drivers, are advised to use caution on mornings that school is in session but the possibility for ice or black ice still exists due to changing conditions.
In preparation for the possibility of weather-related calls, parents and employees should expect a test call and test push notification with School Messenger and the WCS app this year. The test call will help us to make sure we are able to effectively contact everyone when needed. The first test call and push notification to the WCS app should go home on the evening of Tuesday, November 10, around 6:00 PM. If you do not receive this call, please contact your school to make sure your information is correct in School Messenger. If you do not receive the push notification on the WCS app, please check your settings for the app.
Limited Bus Routes are available at the School Bus Transportation webpage (www.wilkescountyschools.org) or you may request a copy at the front desk in your school.
While we hope for a winter with few interruptions to our school schedules and calendar, it does pay off for everyone to think ahead and be prepared in the event of inclement weather. The safety of our students and employees will always be the top priority of this school system.
