Parents/guardians are notified of closings, using the following communication channels:
- District Facebook @WaupunAreaSchoolDistrict
- District website
- WASD App
- Automated phone calls and email messages. Automated messages will not be initiated after 9 pm or before 6 am.
- All of the local radio and tv stations. (WFDL is our official radio station, KFIZ, WBEV, WISN, WISC, WMTV, WTMJ4, etc).
In order to close school due to cold weather, the wind chill needs to be about -40 degrees.
There are other factors that play into that decision, and the superintendent of schools and her designees rely on Wisconsin Emergency Management warnings and notifications.
