School Closings 
Decisions to have a late start, early school dismissal or school cancelled for the day are cautiously considered based upon weather reports, news media, and personal observations when we drive around and check roads. Parents always have the final decision on whether or not to send their children to school or if they want to pick them up early.

If school is cancelled or dismissed early you will be notified by our EZ School Message automated parent notification system, which will deliver a phone call, text message or e-mail supplied by parents/guardians for this purpose. If you answer, you will hear a recorded message.  If you don’t answer the message should go to your voicemail. You can also tune to local radio and television stations for updated cancellation notices:

Radio Stations include:  Topeka’s WIBW 580AM
    Marysville’s KNDY AM/FM
    Clay Center’s KCLY AM
Beatrice, NE’s KWBE AM
Fairbury/Beatrice, NE’s KUTT FM / KGMT AM

Television Stations include: Topeka’s WIBW 13
Topeka’s KSNT 27

With the Christmas holiday fast approaching, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the staff, parents, and community members who enthusiastically contribute so much to our District.  Great communities have great schools and we are so appreciative of your support. On behalf of the Barnes-Hanover-Linn School District and the Board of Education, I would like to wish all of you a Merry Christmas!  Best wishes for a safe December during your Holiday travels!
