Helena-West Helena School District
School Closing Information
In the event that weather conditions call for Helena-West Helena classes or events to be cancelled or offices to be closed, here are some reminders on how to best stay informed on the school district closing situations:
• The Helena-West Helena District Web site will be updated with the latest information regarding school closings and the cancellation of district events and/or activities.
• The Helena-West Helena School District Alertnow Phone System will begin contacting parents and students via the mass notification system as early as 5:15 AM. Parents please be certain that all contact information for your child is correct and on file at your child’s current school location.
• The local television stations will run ongoing information on school closings beginning as early as 5:30 a.m. each morning when severe weather threatens. Helena-West Helena School District will usually make its decision between 5:00 AM and 6:00 AM. Each station is different on the format they use for school closings, but most information "crawls" appear at the bottom of the screen. Although all the television stations and the local radio stations will be called with the latest HWHSD information on school closings, we recommend tuning in to television channels:
