School Delay and Cancellation Information

Click here for School Closings on WMUR


Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Henry LaBranche, wishes to remind all of the residents of the Windham School District of the "NO SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENT" procedures as we enter into the winter months. The decision to cancel school on a particular school day will usually be made by 6:00 a.m. in both districts. However, when appropriate, either or both districts may employ a delayed opening of ninety (90) minutes. The delay announcement will be made by 6:00 a.m. and if cancellation becomes appropriate that announcements will be made not later than 7:00 a.m.

For the convenience of the residents and students of the districts, school cancellations are made on several radio stations. Whereas snow conditions create a busy time for all community officials, calls should not be placed to the local police department; but rather, turn your radio dial to one of the following stations for the information needed.

WFEA 1370 AM
WBZ 1030 AM
WZID 95.7 FM

The following television stations are also notified:

WMUR Channel 9
WBZ Channel 4
WCVB Channel 5
WHDH Channel 7



In the event of severely inclement weather or mechanical breakdown, school may be closed or the starting time delayed by 90 minutes. The same conditions may also necessitate early dismissal. If the school starting time is delayed, the regular time is moved up 90 minutes. (School lunch would be served as regularly scheduled). For example, if your child's bus usually arrives at 6:55 a.m., the bus will arrive at 8:25 a.m. The school start time will move to 9:00 a.m. School is rarely dismissed early, but in the event that an early dismissal is necessary, radio and television stations will be alerted as soon as possible. School closing, delayed starting time or early dismissal will be announced over radio and television stations:

WBZ, AM 1030; WEEI, 590 AM; WCCM, 800 AM; WHDH, 850 AM; WLLH, 1400 AM; WNNW, 1110 AM; WGIR, 610 AM & 101 FM; WOKQ, 97.5 FM

WBZ-TV 4, WCVB-TV 5, WHDH-TV 7, WMUR-TV 9, SLC6 Reports in the morning will be between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. If no report is heard, it can be assumed that school will be in session. PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL. Telephone lines must be kept open for emergencies.
