Bad Weather/Early Dismissals

Early Dismissal Due to Weather

If school is dismissed early due to bad weather conditions, the Buncombe County Schools Central Office will use local TV and radio (and the Alert-Now Phone Notification System when appropriate) to make the announcement. When bad weather is predicted, tune in to WLOS television ( ) or local radio (ex. WWNC or WKSF) for up-to-date news on school closings and delays. Buncombe County Schools main office will also send out telephone messages.

It will not be possible for our office staff to call parents to let them know that school will be dismissing early. Please do not call the school. We need our phone lines to call the bus drivers. We will follow the information you filled out prior to this day unless we receive other directions from you in writing. NO CHANGES can be made over the phone. Due to the shared bus system in the Enka District, Pisgah will dismiss 30 minutes earlier than the announced emergency dismissal time. For example, a 1:00 p.m. announced dismissal time would mean Pisgah would dismiss at 12:30 p.m. We appreciate your cooperation and your understanding with this procedure.
