Delay and Cancellation Policy
Decision to Close or Delay: If inclement weather impacts the morning commute, the Superintendent of Schools, in consultation with the Departments of Public Works, Police and Fire will decide whether to cancel school or delay the opening of school. This decision will be made based on road conditions throughout the town, as well as on the ability to clear school driveways, parking lots, and entrances/exits. Please note that plowing and treating roads is the DPW’s first priority, and neighborhood sidewalks may not be cleared prior to the morning commute.
Communication of Closures and Delays: The Superintendent of Schools typically decides whether to close or delay opening by 5:00 am. Once the decision is made, the district's automated phone call and e-mail system Connect 5 will be used to communicate this information to families and staff. For families, the phone message will be sent to the phone number selected in PowerSchool for cancellations and the e-mail will be sent to both parents' addresses. This message will be sent between 5:00 am and 5:45 am, and may take up to 15 minutes to cycle through.
Cancellation and delay information will also be broadcast on WBZ TV Channel 4, WCVB TV Channel 5, WHDH TV Channel 7, WFXT TV Channel 25, WTAG Radio AM 580, WSRS Radio FM 96.1, and WBZ Radio AM 1030. The Westborough Public Schools District website will display the information (www.westboroughk12.org).
Cancellation and delay information will also be posted on the Superintendent’s Twitter account.
