School Plan for Inclement Weather: When Berkeley County Schools close or delay school for inclement weather, we will do the same. If there is a 2 hour delay on a Friday, we will close at 2:30 pm, instead of 2:00 pm. We highly recommend that you receive texts from Berkeley County Schools regarding delays and closures. To do so go to wvde.state.wv.us/closings/. Please remember that our school calendar does not match the Berkeley County Schools calendar. We only follow them for inclement weather. If Berkeley County Schools are not in session and we experience bad weather, your child's teacher will text you if we have a delay or closing.
