Stay informed: Your BCS Notification Options
We're committed to bringing our community members the information they need, when they need it! In the event that school must be delayed or closed due to severe weather or an emergency situation, we rely on multiple outlets to give our families options. See below for the most current ways to stay informed.
Closing, Delay & Remote Learning Day Information
Adverse weather conditions or other emergencies may require that schools participate in remote learning, be closed, be delayed, or be dismissed early. If announcements are not made via the channels below, buses will run routes on a regular schedule and schools will open at their normal times. Due to isolated inclement weather situations, BCS may also modify the schedule of schools according to their assigned districts (Enka, Erwin, North Buncombe, Owen, Reynolds, or Roberson).
Buncombe County Schools will utilize up to five remote instruction days or 30 remote instruction hours when schools are unable to open due to severe weather conditions, etc.
