If it snows, the first thing children want to know is whether they will have a snow day. The kids enjoy the day off with snow play and the parents, well, they have to adapt. To find out whether schools will close in a snowstorm or other weather-related incidents, parents stay glued to local radio and television reports.

In case of inclement weather or emergencies in the Kansas City region, there 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 the cancellation of snow days.

In addition, we also list public school districts, private schools, and charter schools in both Missouri and Kansas and their websites in case you need to contact the school directly.
