As the winter brings snow and ice, school systems across the country are forced to close schools for the day, or delay the start of classes. The reason for closing schools is usually due to bad weather conditions, such as snow or icy roads. However, there may be other reasons to close schools, such as an unexpected drop in attendance or a disastrous health outbreak. Whatever the reason for the closing, school systems use different methods to communicate their decision, which means that some school systems are more reliable than others.
