In the event of inclement weather, WIS will make its own decision regarding a closure or delay. There will not be a specific announcement about WIS on local radio or TV stations. WIS posts delay/closure information on the website home page, Tweets the decision (@WISRedDevils), posts a push notification on the WIS app, and includes an announcement on the WISE Line (202) 298-9473, typically before 6:30 AM.
In the event of an one-hour delay, beginning-of-the-day schedules move back by one hour; if there is a two-hour delay, beginning-of-the-day schedules move back by two hours. Unless otherwise specified, all standard dismissal times remain unchanged on delayed-opening days.
