School Closings

In the event of severe weather or road conditions, or in the event of building power outages or other building issues, the Bay Village City School District may cancel school. When there is a closing, the district will use our School Messenger calling and messaging system to announce closings through voice messages, email and text. It is important that you keep any changes to your contact information up to date through your school office. (Want to know how we decide to close schools due to the weather? Watch How We Decide About Snow Days at the bottom of this page.)


Would you like to get text messages on your cell phone from your school and the district? 
Use the cell phone/s for which you want texts.

We FIRST must have those cell phone number/s in our school database for this to work. Keep your phone numbers up to date through your school office.

Then text: Y to 67587 
You must also have allowed your cellular plan (usually at sign up) to
let you subscribe to short code services.


We also rely on news media as an important method to reach parents and students regarding school closings. You should not rely on information from individuals or social media without confirming closings on TV news websites or on

You can confirm school closings at the following news websites: 

WKYC Channel 3:  (text and email alerts available)

WEWS Channel 5: (email alerts available)
