No School?

If Wareham Public Schools are to be closed or to have a delayed opening, the decision is usually not reached until early in the morning.

Wareham Public Schools makes such announcements on the following media outlets: WEEI 850 AM, WPLM 99.1 FM, WBZ 1030 AM/TV 4, WCVB TV 5, WHDH TV 7, WQRC 99.9 FM, WCIB 102 FM, WCOD 106.1 FM, WBSM 1420 AM, WFHN 107 FM, WCTK 98.1 FM, WPXC 93.5 FM, WXTK 95 FM, FRANKFM 101.1 FM, WFXT FOX 25.

In addition, every effort will be made to contact every household directly by telephone via the Power Announcement telephone system. Please contact your child’s school in order to ensure your contact information is up-to-date in the system.

Closings are also generally announced on the district website, WarehamPS.org, and on our official Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Parents are reminded to keep children home if schools are to be in session, but conditions are hazardous in your immediate residential area. Parents should, in such cases, send a signed note to the school when the child next attends school. We ask that this practice not be abused.

Parents are also alerted to the fact that, occasionally, because of severe weather or other emergency conditions, school may be dismissed during the school day at any time. It is impossible for the School Department to notify all parents prior to an emergency dismissal. Therefore, we expect that parents work out plans with friends or relatives to care for children in the event of an emergency dismissal.

In the event that school is canceled due to inclement weather, dangerous driving conditions, or other emergencies, all other activities canceled for that day or evening will be canceled, with the exception of Adult Evening School. Cancellation of Adult Evening School will be announced separately.
