    SCHOOL CALL-OFF, EARLY DISMISSAL AND DELAYED OPENING PROCEDURES
    At times it is possible that school may be called off, dismissed early or delayed in opening because of weather and road conditions or failures of heat, water, etc. in school buildings. If this occurs, school officials will notify TV and radio stations that have offered to make “NO SCHOOL” announcements.
     
    These stations have offered to make our announcements:
    WRTV TV – 6
    WCBK – FM 102.3 Martinsville
    WISH TV – 8
    WEDJ – FM 107.1 Indianapolis
    WTHR TV – 13
    WXIN TV – 59
     
    Announcements will also be posted on the district webpage and social media pages:
    www.avon-schools.org (District Website)
    www.facebook.com/Avon.Schools (Facebook)
    www.twitter.com/OrioleTweets (Twitter)
     
    Every effort will be made to arrive at a decision and notify the TV/radio stations and post on our district webpage and social media pages by 6:00 a.m. if school is to be called off or delayed by an hour or two. Announcements will be made/posted EACH DAY there will be no school.
     
    ✮Students and parents are requested to not call school officials on mornings when weather conditions are questionable. It is important that telephone lines be free to gather information and communicate with TV and radio stations.✮
     
    On school days when weather conditions worsen during the day, it is possible that school officials may determine that it is necessary to dismiss school early. Parents are urged to keep tuned to our cooperating TV/radio stations or to view our district webpage or social media pages on such days so that they may be made aware if schools are going to be dismissed early.
     
    SPECIAL CARE AND ARRANGEMENTS SHOULD BE MADE IN ADVANCE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF EARLY SCHOOL DISMISSALS IN CASES WHERE BOTH PARENTS WORK AND NO ONE IS AT HOME DURING THE SCHOOL DAY TO CARE FOR CHILDREN.
