WLOS Offers Text Alerts for School Closings and Delays
WLOS will send text alerts regarding school closings and delays to anyone over the age of 13 who signs up on their website (see the web address below). The web site address to sign up for this service is http://www.wlos.com/sections/mobile/sign_up.shtml
BUT, if you or your students sign up for this service, in order to receive ALL RELEVANT BUNCOMBE COUNTY SCHOOL DELAY/CLOSURE ALERTS you MUST CHECK 3 SELECTIONS on their drop down list of schools:
1) check "Buncombe County Schools" (this will alert you in the case of district-wide closures or delays); AND
2) check "Buncombe County Schools: _____District" (Enka, Erwin, Owen, N.Buncombe and/or Reynolds/Roberson--this will alert you if your district has an individual closure/delay); AND
3) check "Buncombe County Schools: All Other Districts" (this will alert you if one district is delayed or closed, but others--perhaps yours--are different)
Hope you will find this information helpful.
