If it snows, the first thing children want to know is whether they will have a snow day. Will there be enough snow to warrant closing or delaying school? If there is, children, to their delight, stay home as visions of snowmen dance in their heads. And parents, well, they just have to adapt.

To find out whether schools will close in a snowstorm, parents stay glued to local radio and television reports. But there are more ways to learn this crucial information. 

In case of inclement weather or emergencies in the Kansas City region, here are several ways to find up-to-date information about school closings and delays, and the latest weather. From the same sources, you will also learn about cancellation of snow days.

Scroll down and you'll also find a list of public school districts, private schools and charter schools in both Missouri and Kansas.
