Winter Weather Closings and Delays

Winter Weather Information
Posted on 11/14/2018



School closings and delays for students at Early College are based upon closing and delay decisions made for base high school districts. 

If all Buncombe County Schools are closed, students do not report to Early College for high school classes. 

If a base school district is closed, it will be closed to all students who reside in that district. There will be no announcement specific to Early College for a closing or delay so students are expected to follow their base school district closing or delay. 
 For example, if the Owen district is closed, students that live in the Owen district would not report to school.  

Specific for Early College, students will not report to school if either their base school or A.B. Tech are closed. 

If Early College students are taking A.B. Tech courses and Early College is closed but A.B. Tech is open, they are expected to report to A.B. Tech classes if they can do so safely. If students do not feel they can safely report to class, they are expected to contact the instructor.
