Procedures for School Cancellations/Delays/Early ReleaseĀ 

When inclement weather is in the forecast, the follow procedures will be followed:

  • Six transportation employees, plus the Superintendent, will personally drive designated areas of the county to check road conditions between 4:30-5:00 a.m.
  • This team will meet collectively at 5:30 a.m. to make the decision regarding school cancellation/delay.
  • 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 staff and communications with surrounding districts and weather personnel.

NOTE:In inclement weather, parents/guardians will make the final decision on whether to allow their student to drive to school. If the parent/guardian determines roadways to be unsafe for their student driver, the absence will be excused upon notification.

Communication Plan:

The decisions to call off school or to dismiss school early will be made with enough advance notice to mobilize busses and inform families and staff.

  • Radio and TV stations will be notified as soon as possible.
  • Parents/staff will be notified via the automated School Messenger One Call system.
  • Updates will be posted to Taylor County School District social media:
    • Facebook/Taylor County Schools
    • Twitter/ @TC_Schools_KY
    • Instagram/  @tc_schools_ky

Any questions may be directed to the Board office at (270) 465-5371.
