KYW Newsradio provides school closing announcements for public schools, private primary educational schools (grades preschool-12), accredited degree-granting colleges/universities, seminaries, religious schools, daycare and nursery schools. These are the ONLY school cancellations that we provide as a free public service.
All schools must be a member of our system to make a cancellation. No cancellations will be accepted without this pre-arrangement.
Unfortunately, we are not able to provide school cancellation services for community organizations; government agencies etc.
