Immediately after a delay or closing decision is made, an alert is posted near the top of BuncombeSchools.org and every BCS school's home page. Generally, this is the fastest way to see an alert since the automated calls can take several minutes to receive due to many factors (such as cell phone carriers).
3) Social Media
Our BCS Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages relay the same message posted to our district and school pages. To find these pages, look for the social media icons at BuncombeSchools.org. Here on Facebook, click Like and Follow near the top of the Buncombe County Schools page to add our posts to your feed.
4) BCS Weather Hotline
For those unable to access our web-based alerts, a hotline has been created for up-to-date weather information: 828-255-5939.
5) Local Broadcast Media
Stay tuned to WLOS ABC 13 or visit http://wlos.com/weather/closings and http://www.citizen-times.com for a current list of school delays and closures.
We hope this helps give you options for staying informed throughout the winter months!
