In the event of severe weather or road conditions, or in the event of building power outages or other building issues, the Bay Village City School District may cancel school. When there is a closing, the district will use our SchoolConnects calling and messaging system to announce closings through voice messages, email and text. (Want to know how we decide to close schools due to the weather? Watch How We Decide About Snow Days at the bottom of this page.)
