Welcome to the Kern County Schools Alert Line.

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.
