Procedures for School Cancellations/Delays/Early Release

When inclement weather is in the forecast, the following procedures will be followed by Taylor County School District:

  • Transportation employees, including the Superintendent, will drive their designated areas of the county to check road conditions starting at approximately 4:30am. 

  • This team will meet collectively to make a decision regarding school cancellation/delay by 5:45am. 

  • Future forecast will be taken into consideration when making cancellation/ delay/early release decisions. 

  • Decisions to call off or delay school will be made by the Superintendent after consultation with the Transportation Department and communication with surrounding districts and weather personnel. 

REMINDER: In inclement weather, parents/guardians will make the final decision on whether to allow their student driver to drive to school based on the roadway conditions. 

Please refer to the Winter Weather Communication flyer regarding the communication plan. 

Any questions can be directed to the Board of Education at 270-465-5371.
