From time to time, the Barre City School may have to close or delay opening due to inclement weather or other unexpected circumstances.
The decision to delay or cancel is extremely important for everyone’s safety. We take it very seriously and there is no guarantee we can make the correct decision every time, but we do our absolute best. Please help us by being patient and understanding, and providing appropriate and constructive feedback.

In the event of an emergency which necessitates evacuating the school building, an alarm will sound signaling all of the students and school
personnel to leave the building and report to a designated safe area. If it is determined that the children need to be sent home, buses will be called.
Bulletins will be broadcast on the local radio stations, WDEV (550 AM), WSKI (1240 AM), WSNO (1450 AM), WORK (107 FM) and our district’s calling system will be used to notify or leave a message for all families who can be reached by phone.
Parents should have arrangements made for their children in the event of any early dismissal. Students should know where to go if parents are not home when they get there. This "emergency home" must be on the child's same bus route. Because we would not have time to contact all families, a bus pass for a stop other than the normal stop will not be honored in the event of an emergency evacuation/dismissal.
If school is closed early due to inclement weather, this also will be broadcast on the local radio stations listed below.
