Individual school closures due to unique circumstances (e.g., power outage) will be announced as early as possible in the same manner. If snowfall begins while school are in session, in most circumstances, the schools will remain OPEN until the usual end of the school day.  No radio or television announcement will be made saying that schools are open.  Only school closures will be announced by the media.
