    How can you find out when schools are open after a snow day?

    A:

    To find out whether a school is open, a person could visit the school's website to locate its page for closings information, watch for school closings on local television stations, listen for school closings on local radio stations, call the school directly or visit the school's social media pages. School closing announcements typically apply for only a day, so unless the school is listed as closed on the morning after the snow day, then it can assumed to be open.
