Emergency Dismissals from School


Parents should explain to their children what to do if school should be dismissed early in an emergency and no one will be at home:


                1. Make arrangements with a neighbor to receive your child.

                2. Give the child specific instructions so he/she will know what to do.

                3. When the weather is threatening, listen to Knoxville radio station WIVK,

                     Morristown radio stations WMTN and WCRK, and Knoxville TV stations

                     WATE, WBIR, and WVLT for information about school closings.

               4. School Reach will notify parents when/if school dismisses early. Only contact the school to make changes to your     

                   child’s early dismissal plan. The telephone lines are always overloaded in emergency situations.
