School Closing Policy


Closing of School / Delayed Openings

We understand that snow days are challenging for everyone. Bible Center has a practice of being open if at all possible. Generally, we will close only in extreme conditions. Decisions about closings or delays will be made by 6:00 AM on the day in question. Bible Center School does not necessarily follow the Kanawha County closings. If the school day has been placed on a 2-hour delay, the school administration will make a decision to close the school for the remainder of the day before 8:30 AM. BCS will does not dismiss early due to weather. All families should make the safest decision when deciding whether or not to attend school on days with inclement weather.

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

⇒ Text & Phone Call – Each family will receive a text message and voicemail alert through ParentsWeb. Please make sure all contact information is up to date. Email Principal Schafer if you have any questions or need help updating your contact information.
