How BC communicates weather-related closings, delays

With winter just around the corner, it’s a good time to become familiar with how the district shares weather-related school closing information.

Cancellations, delays or early dismissals are posted at the top of the school district’s website, right on the homepage at and will also be shared via ParentSquare.

School closings are also announced on local TV stations as well as on the School Closings section of We will also post closings and delays on the district’s Twitter (now known as X) ( page. School closings are NOT posted to Facebook.

For district parents/guardians and staff, closing information will be sent directly to you via email and text message using ParentSquare. You do NOT need to be signed up for ParentSquare to receive information from the district or from your child’s school. As a parent/guardian and staff member, the contact information that the district has on file is used to contact you when schools are delayed or closed. Parents/guardians who need to update their contact information that is stored in Aspen, please email District Registrar Melissa Haas at

Please remember: It is best to rely on more than one source of information when it comes to weather-related announcements. This is particularly true in situations that involve power outages, which can affect the district’s ability to send electronic notifications.
