How do you find out if school is canceled?

For me its normally either my Dad tells me because he was listening on the radio, or I look on the school's web site, I get an email too, but I would normally see the web page first. If it gets canceled early enough they have an automated thing call.

If you have a variation of a way that is listed or a way that isn't listed, please put it as a reply.

I dunno if you can add other things (I've never made any polls before), but you might want to add a TV option, cuz that's how I used to find out.

Back when I went to school, we wasn't told until we got there.
My school was around 3 miles away (a 7 minute bus journey with no traffic or a 10-15 minute walk through some creapy fields - I always chose the latter :/).

I would usually find out while walking there, ie someone from another "year" would be walking back saying "the boiler is broke" or whatever the reason is for the school closing that day.

This is probably the only time all the "years" in the school would work together (after all, no-one wants to go to school right? hehe).

Guess my school was too lazy to phone the 800+ pupils, and schools having websites was pretty new back then.

I find out when I get there, they never update the school website, they hardly ever cancel it anyway.  :P
