How to find out if there’s a snow day

December 5, 2008

North Texas thermometers are already dipping to freezing temperatures.

When the mercury hits freezing and there’s snow or ice on the ground, you may wonder whether the Health Science Center will be open. Here are three easy ways to find out, listed below in order of authority.

  • Call our main phone number – 817-735-2000. This is the first and most authoritative source for weather closure information. If the Health Science Center does close for inclement weather, a special recorded message will play when you call the main number, and it will remain until the decision to reopen has been made.

  • Visit our Web site. After the decision to close for bad weather has been made, a notice is placed on our main Web site stating the date(s) and time(s) of closures. The notice will remain on the main Web page until the campus is reopened.

  • Watch local TV and listen to local radio. All four major local television channels – NBC 5, ABC 8, CBS 11, and FOX 4 – are notified when we close for inclement weather. If we do close, our information will be included with the school, government and other closures these broadcasts announce. In addition to these television outlets, local radio stations WBAP (820 AM), KRLD (1080 AM) and KVIL (103.7 FM) also are notified of HSC closures.

Please do not call the campus police department for closure information. Calling the police department should be done only in emergency situations.
