The School Alert Line was developed by the Kern County Superintendent of Schools Office to facilitate communication between districts and the public in the event of a school delay or closure. Some districts are authorized to call a two hour delay, other districts are authorized to call a three hour delay. District superintendents may also elect to close school for the day.
Reasons for delay or closure of a school district include dense fog, hazardous road conditions, power outages. Some districts which call a delay allow students to be dropped off at school by a parent or guardian -- only the buses are delayed.
For more information on your district's policy, please call your district office.
