School Closings & Alerts

Viewing School Closings & Alerts Information

While remote learning provides new opportunities to continue education from home, given that some students and teachers in our community must travel to access reliable internet service, for the 2023-2024 school year, TCAPS will continue to call inclement weather days. In the event of an inclement weather day, staff in cooperation with the GT Road commission, work to determine if roads are safe enough for transportation and travel to schools.

On the day of a school closing or when an important message needs to be shared, an Alert screen will appear every time the district and/or all school home pages are opened. (This is an embedded feature of the website and is not affected by pop up blockers.) Archived alert messages can be found on this webpage.

TCAPS will also send text alerts to staff and families provided that they have opted in to receive text alerts from the district. This will allow the district and schools to share important and timely information with staff and families via text messaging, including snow day alerts. All text messages will come from the same numbers (87569 or 79041). You can opt in at any time by sending the word YES to 79041. Please make sure your phone number is on file with the school. If your cell phone number is not on file with the school and added to your child's account, you will not be able to receive text messages. Texting is limited to contact numbers tied to the district’s staff and student databases, therefore is not available to the general public. 

School closing information will continue to be shared via our normal methods: all local media stations, the district Facebook/Twitter feeds, and the bus hotline (231.933.1955). School closings are announced as early in the morning as possible, but can occur as late as 6:00 a.m. 

It is important to remember that the final decision regarding the attendance of your student on an inclement weather day is a personal decision parents must make for their family. It should be noted that the safest form of pupil transportation to and from school is the school bus.
