The Tuscaloosa County School System makes every effort to communicate with employees and parents during times of severe weather or other emergencies.
Along with maintaining our instructional program, student safety remains as our greatest concern. In times of threatening conditions due to severe weather or other emergencies, the Tuscaloosa County School System (TCSS) makes every effort to communicate with employees and parents in a timely and concise manner.
In the event of such emergencies, the TCSS has developed a plan to allow for both a delayed opening or early dismissal of schools, as well as school closings. If such action is required, the time for the closing, opening or dismissal of schools will be announced through all normal media outlets, the TCSS website, and parent notification system.
