WSD Inclement Weather/School Closing Information

 

 

Timely communication with our District families is always a priority, and especially important in emergency school closing situations. If WSD schools are forced to close due to inclement weather or other factors (i.e. power outages, water main breaks) parents/guardians and students will be notified in the following ways.

 

 

District Phone Call

 

The Wentzville School District utilizes SchoolReach, a telephone broadcast system that allows school administrators to notify all households by phone within minutes of an emergency or unplanned event that causes early dismissal or school cancellation. The service may also be used occasionally by individual schools to communicate general announcements or reminders. Please be sure to notify the school office about any change in your personal contact information!

 

 

TV/Radio

 

When inclement weather causes the District to cancel school or dismiss classes early, please check the following television and radio stations for school closing information.

 

 

KTVI - TV Channel 2 KMOX Radio 1120 AM

 

KMOV - TV Channel 4  KWRE Radio 730 AM  

 

KSDK - TV Channel 5  KFAV Radio 99.9 FM

 

 

These TV and radio stations also have web sites with the same school closing information. Look for the Wentzville R-IV School District. Please be advised that individual schools will not be listed separately, closings will always be listed as the Wentzville R-IV School District.

 

 

Website

 

The District website will be updated with any emergency school closing information. Please check on the homepage.

 

 

WSD eNews

 

The District publishes an electronic newsletter called the WSD eNews that is emailed to parents/guardians who have students in our schools. This newsletter gives patrons information about what’s happening in the District that affects our students, families, and community. The WSD eNews also sends out information regarding emergency school closings. Community members can also sign up to receive the eNews. You can stop delivery at any time simply by clicking on the unsubscribe tab.

 

 

Facebook and Twitter

 

The WSD has its own Facebook page (Wentzville School District) be sure to “like” us! It's a great way to keep up to date with the latest happenings in the District, complete with pictures. You can also follow the District on Twitter, just search for WSDinfo. Both social media sites will be used not only to keep community members informed about the latest news in the District, but in the event of a school closing or emergency, this will be yet another means of communicating quickly and efficiently.
