Please listen / view information sent through the KCS School Messenger via phone call, email, or text. School closings, delays and dismissals are sent to the phone number you have provided to your child’s school. During bad weather, if the possibility of a school closing is apparent, you may come to school to sign your child out with no attendance penalty. You do not need to call the school office beforehand. It is important that we keep the phone lines open for emergency information from school and county supervisors. Please listen to local radio or TV stations for information and updates on school closings, or check the Knox County Schools website for this information. Although buses will attempt to keep their regular routes, please be aware any bus route can be shortened or cancelled due to flooding, ice or snow.
