"Linking Potential With Achievement"
All decisions to close school due to bad weather are made by the Carroll County Board of Education. If school is closed early, you are welcome to come to the office to sign your child out. Parents should listen to the radio and/or television throughout the day to find out if schools are closing early. Parents should tell their child exactly what to do if schools should close early. Plan and discuss with your child who will pick them up and where they should go. Please do not try to call the school unless it is an emergency.
If inclement weather or other emergencies force closing school, information will be given as early as possible over WBBJ-CHANNEL 7 TV, WSMV TV CHANNEL 4, WREG TV CHANNEL 3, WTVF TV CHANNEL 5, 92.3 FM, 100.9 FM, 104 FM, 105.5 FM, 106.9 FM, 1530 AM, AND 1410 AM. As early as 6:00 AM, you may find out about school closings by visiting the web site www.carrollschools.com. Additionally, you may sign up for “Notify Me” on the school website to receive weather related messages. The school website is www.huntingdonschools.net/hms. Parents/guardians may also sign up to receive announcements from the Carroll County Board of Education on the internet at http://www.carrollschools.com/notification.htm. From the Carroll County Board of Education website, you may add, edit, or delete your contact information for announcements concerning your child.
