Snow Day Success.
Planning ensures your team is ready to respond.
Social Media Announcements
Prepare social media graphics and captions prior to the first flake of snow. Having consistent, branded visual posts allow families to quickly identify schedule changes in their social media feed.
Use the same graphics for all of your weather related delays and closures so you community recognizes them quickly. Be sure to only use them for unexpected closures or delays.
Social media posts to have ready
Early Out - Delayed - Canceled
Hard Surfaces Only
Link to decision-making information on your website
Website Banners and Announcements
When snow or ice collects, families have one question. What is the schedule today? Adding a banner or popup to your website answers that question immediately saving phone calls and confusion.
News Post for Your Website
Community members don't always understand how carefully you make decisions about weather-related delays and closures. Sharing your decision-making process in advance, instills confidence that helps build support throughout your district.
Provide Information about your Decision
Include information about your decision making process in your social media feed to get ahead of any comments or questions that may come up.
Explain your decision making process - why delay vs cancel - use friendly but informative language
Provide information about busses - how will bus routes be impacted
Provide information about before and after care
Updates on impacts to school activities
