Notifications for School Closings & Delays

  • Sound Image The Sevier County Board of Education authorizes the Superintendent to close schools in the event hazardous weather or any other emergency which presents a threat to the safety of students, staff members, or school property. As soon as the decision to close schools is made, the superintendent will notify the public media and request that announcements be made.

    In the event the Superintendent decides to delay, cancel or dismiss school early, the Sevier County School System will begin immediately disseminating the information by:

    • A notification to local news media outlets (Be reminded that this is the primary method of notification.)
    • An automated phone message to staff and parents registered with our Parent Link Mass Notification System
    • An alert posted to the Sevier County School System's district and school websites
    • An alert posted to the district's official Twitter account
