Do Schools Close When the Weather is Bad? How Will I Know?  

Sometimes schools close when the weather is very bad. For example, if there is a lot of snow outside or there is a tornado, the school may close.
Listen to the radio or watch the television news in the morning to see if your student’s school is closed
