Emergency & Inclement Weather Notification
for School Closing, Delay and Early Dismissal
Updated November 25, 2014
As weather or other emergency situations arise that may affect the school day, Superintendent Dr. Rudy Ruth will be in touch with our Transportation and Operations Directors, as well as surrounding district Superintendents. He will make a decision based on the information presented to him at the time that the call must be made for the purposes of maintaining student and employee safety.
The Wilson School District has a comprehensive and time-efficient notification plan in place for updating our staff, parents and students. Please take note of the following ways in which we will post any information related to a Wilson school closing, delay or early dismissal for inclement weather or other emergency situations:
