How are Inclement Weather Decisions Made?

How are inclement weather decisions made at Brevard Academy?


Because we serve students from more than just Transylvania County, I monitor weather, road conditions, and closings in Buncombe and Henderson Counties as well.  It is never an easy decision or exact science when determining if we should close or delay school. I will always err on the side of student and staff safety.


In the event of weather related delays, we will not have bus service in the morning, as we cannot guarantee the safe conditions in the private parking lots we use for student pick up.  Delaying the start of school allows families time to transport students to school. We will update families using our website, Blackboard Connect and Facebook if we are not able to run buses in the afternoon.


In the event of bad weather prior to the start of the school day, please use the following information sources for broadcasts regarding closing or delayed schedules for opening:


WLOS Channel 13

WYFF Channel 4

WSPA Channel 7

WSQL AM 1240

Blackboard Connect

School Website:


More information is on our website in the Family Handbook under Student Life Tab.


Our school calendar is based on instructional hours.  In the event we need to make up time, we have potential snow days built into the calendar.  These days are listed on our official calendar and I will update families if we need to use them with as much warning as possible.


Thank you again for your understanding and support.
