So, whatever happened to leaving school delays on this site? I am very aggravated b/c I checked this site and NewsCenter 16 at 7 o'clock and didn't see a delay at either...so I got my boys up and took them school only to see the 2 hr delay sign posted on the door!

What time was the delay sent in to the tv station?

I also thought delays and closings were going to continue to be posted here, but as for Channel 16 posting the delay I saw it at 5:50 this morning.

I checked my cell phone and it showed the delay from 16, 22, and Willie 103 at 5:20 a.m.

That's so weird! I don't know what happened, but I know it was not on there when I checked this morning! I saw a couple of other schools, but nothing in the W's...oh well.

The internet service to the school was down this morning. I'm sorry that you didn't get the message on the blog. We do plan to use this site for delays and closings in the future. We also notify weareclosedtoday.com, a website which will notify you by e-mail and/or text if there is an announcement. It is still a little slick, so drive carefully this morning!
