School Closing Policy


Closing of School / Delayed Openings

Severe weather or other emergencies may require school to be closed for the day, or the opening of school to be delayed. For weather closings or delays, BCS will not follow the Kanawha County School announcements. A decision to close school or delay opening is generally announced by 6:00 AM and is made for one day at a time.

This information is posted on the State Board’s website and on our Facebook page. In addition, it is relayed to local radio and television stations. If school is in session, the decision to send a child to school is ultimately made by parents and guardians. Bible Center School never dismisses early.

When school needs to be closed or delayed, the information will be available in the following ways:

Internet – Information will be provided at: This is a very direct and easy way to get the latest information

⇒ Email – Each family will receive an email sent to the email address on file.

⇒ News Media
