When Bad Weather Hits…

 

§    No announcement means that school will operate on a regular schedule!

 

§    If we have to make an inclement weather call, the announcement will be made on the RCS District website at www.rock.k12.nc.us, on the RCS Facebook/Twitter pages, an RCS Alert Now phone message, on local TV or radio stations and on the RCS Weather Line at 623-1385.

 

§    The decision to close school or to operate on a delayed schedule will be announced by 6:00 AM., if possible. The announcement will designate what plan to follow.

 

§    If bad weather begins after school is in session, school may be dismissed early to permit student to get home before roads become too dangerous. Again, please check the RCS District website at www.rock.k12.nc.us, the RCS Facebook/Twitter pages, local TV or radio stations or the RCS Weather Line at 623-1385.
