The Trimble County School System may make the decision to close early, to delay, or to cancel school when winter weather makes driving conditions hazardous. We carefully evaluate each situation on a case-by-case basis. There is no set criteria for when school will be delayed or cancelled (a certain temperature, a certain amount of snow, etc.). Typically, we will check roads between 4:30 and 5:00a.m. and then reconvene around 5 a.m. to discuss road and weather conditions so that an informed decision can be made. We will make every reasonable effort to make announcements by 5:30 AM. If we are in the middle of several days of bad weather and a decision can be made in the evening, we will most certainly do so.
School closings, delays or early dismissals will be posted on the school’s website and the district facebook page as soon as the decision is made. A OneCall alert will be sent to parents but can take up to 30 minutes for all the calls to be delivered by the system.

If no announcement is made, schools will operate on a normal schedule.
Weather conditions sometimes become unfavorable during the day after children have arrived at school. In the event we have to dismiss early, the same methods of communication will be utilized in notifying parents. Working parents are advised to make arrangements for childcare on days when schools must be dismissed early. Also, please review the information you have listed as emergency contacts and make sure that the numbers are updated with your child’s school office.
We will communicate closings, delays, and early dismissals as quickly as possible. Our primary concern is the safety of children and our staff. Thank you for your continued support. It’s About Every Student, Every Day…No Excuses!
