Changes to School Delay & Closure Notification Process

Post date: Nov 18, 2016 7:48:42 PM

In an attempt to streamline our emergency notification process and make our system as efficient as possible, we will be notifying and using the following media outlets and communication means when making school delay and closure calls.

WLOS – Channel 13 in Asheville

WKYK Radio

WWNC Radio

The Asheville Citizen Times – which posts on their website

The Yancey County Schools website

The Yancey County 911 Office which pages out over their system – if you have a home scanner

The YCS weather line at 682-7322

And of course, our Blackboard Connect 5 Communication System which is capable of phone calls, texts and emails.

If you do not want to receive informational calls from Yancey County Schools, please dial 828.682.6101 ext 320 and leave your name and the number you would like to have removed OR . . . you do have the option to opt-out at the end of outreach calls.
