When inclement weather or other emergencies cause the Graves County Schools to cancel classes, the announcement will be made through various media, according to transportation director Jason Riley.
Decisions are made as soon as possible, based on administrators’ analysis of current conditions and meteorological forecasts. Riley said he realizes parents need lead time to make alternative arrangements and, therefore, attempts to announce school closings as early as he can on days of questionable weather.
Announcements are posted on the school district’s web site at www.graves.kyschools.us. And, a district information telephone hotline is available at (270) 674-4803 or 328-4803. District administrators notify WPSD/Local 6 TV (www.wpsdlocal6.com), Timeless Favorites WYMC-AM 1430/FM 93.9 (http://mywymc.com), and the stations of Bristol Broadcasting: WDDJ /Electric 96.9, News/Talk WKYX-AM 570/FM 94.3, 24-Carot Country WKYQ-FM 93.3, WLLE-FM 102.1/Willie Radio, News/Talk WNGO-AM 1320, and Christmas RadioWQQR-FM 94.7.
